Event description

Description

The East Asian Uses of the European Past project, funded by the Humanities in the European Research Area, is proud to announce a one-day conference on 1 April 2019 to discuss the creation of historical knowledge between East Asia and Europe from 1600-1950. In thematic panels and keynote talks, we will explore how ideas about the past circulated and were repurposed within East Asian networks of exchange. Some of the questions we will consider include: how did East Asian actors use their understanding of European expansion to burnish their own colonial aspirations? What does it mean to say the Chinese had a ‘Middle Ages’—originally a way of talking about the history of and for Europeans? How might the maritime narratives of East Asians challenge how the past of cultural others is viewed?

5.15pm-6.45pm: Keynote Lecture 2: Megan Thomas (UC Santa Cruz)
Title: European Pasts in the Margins of Filipino History-Making

6.45pm – 7.30pm: Concluding remarks and drinks reception
