European Forum on Korean-Japanese History

International Workshop of the European Forum on Korean-Japanese History


“The State, Violence and the Rule of Law in Korean-Japanese History”

Zeit: 28. bis 29. Juni 2013

Ort: Universität Leiden

The conceptual triangle State-Violence-Law is on purpose wide open. We seek contributions in English of original research from scholars around the globe dealing with any or all of these concepts from a perspective of institutional, political, social, cultural, international, transnational or comparative history. Papers that introduce hitherto untapped archival resources and/or challenging reinterpretations of established readings are particularly solicited. Unimpressed by the reification of the modern, we explicitly welcome contributions irrespective of period, hoping to strike a balance between “modernists” and “premodernists”.

Abstracts (max. 750 words and a short bio) can be sent to the workshop organizer, Koen De Ceuster at: k.de.ceuster@hum.leidenuniv.nl before 30 July 2012. Authors will be notified of acceptance in the course of the summer. Full papers are due 25 May 2013. Pending funding, all costs will be covered.
