Project 3rd European Forum for Korean-Japanese History

Basic data

Title:
3rd European Forum for Korean-Japanese History
Duration:
22/09/2017 to 25/09/2017
Abstract / short description:
The Forum functions as a platform where the tangled histories of Korea and Japan are critically debated, common framing concepts are questioned, source materials are reread and untapped archival materials mobilized. As the professional field is still largely defined by national labels, the Forum probes these labels as ordering principles that reproduce contemporary antagonisms in both research and teaching. For too long, a historiography based on the nation-state has often made it difficult to engage in relevant dialogues. Now, theoretical and methodological developments in historiography allow the writing of history beyond the nation-state and open up new fields of research. In this workshop, we want to look at the cultural, political, social, religious or economic history of Korea and Japan through the ‘lenses of gender’.
