Asia Network


The Asia Network is interested in regional histories of Asia, as well as in transnational and global histories that draw attention to Asia’s positioning within larger discursive constructions and socio-historical and economic processes. We seek to be as inclusive as possible and welcome paper and session proposals on any topic pertaining to all parts of Asia, as well as comparisons with other areas of the world, particularly the global South. The Asia network covers all historical periods, including histories of the present. We normally link our sessions with the thematic networks of ESSHC to attract those interested in the topics at hand, but who may not be experts on Asian countries.
