Photographs and audio are now available from the November 18, 2014 event “East Asian Historical Thought in Comparative Perspective: What History Is, Knows, Does: China.” The event, co-sponsored by the Department of History, featured Viren Murthy, University of Wisconsin – Madison, Carol Gluck, George Sansom Professor of History at Columbia University, and Harry Harootunian, Senior Research Scholar at the Weatherhead East Asian Institute.
Professors Gluck, Harootunian, and Murthy participated in a two-hour panel discussion on the historiography of China. Their conversation included a question and answer session with the standing room only audience and time for informal discussion over light refreshments.
This event was the second in a three-part series that explores the historical study of Japan, China, and the West in a comparative perspective. The final lecture, on the West, is Tuesday, December 3 at 6 p.m. The talk features Eelco Runia of the University of Groningen.
