Social Sciences Building (SOS) 250, USC
Please RSVP by April 5
This meeting is the first of an annual series of workshops intended to give UCLA and USC graduate students studying East Asia an opportunity to meet and discuss a subject that matters to their broad areas of interest and study. This year our focus is on East Asian maritime trading networks past and present. The circulation of people and goods figures into networks of power and exchange that connect places within East Asia and to places on other continents. UCLA graduate students and associated faculty are invited to attend and join in a conversation with UCLA and USC faculty from Ethnic Studies, History, and International Relations whose papers will be discussed by graduate students from each other’s universities. The full program is attached.
