Asian Borderlands: the First Annual Symposium

Cosponsored Event

This is the first meeting of a proposed annual conference of a research network that will meet every year at a different university, our other partner institutions being Chicago, Columbia and Cornell. Graduate Students from Harvard and beyond will convene to discuss a range of historical topics about border-making and border-crossing in various parts of early modern and modern Asia. The topics are of interest to students of South Asian, South-east Asian, Indian Ocean and East-Asian history. All are welcome to join us for the presentations and subsequent discussions, and no registration is required.

Along with the public conference, there are a series of paper workshops and closed-door roundtable discussions with faculty experts on various relevant topics on Friday, March 24. These sessions are restricted to faculty and graduate students. Interested graduate students should email for the reading list/ packet for the Friday workshops, with which some familiarity will be expected. Harvard faculty from all departments are most welcome to attend all sessions on both the days.

Sponsored by the Asia Center, Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies, History Department, Inner Asian and Altaic Studies, Reischauer Institute of Japanese Studies, South Asia Institute, and Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, Harvard University.
