The Centre for Transnational History
The Centre for Transnational History provides a forum for research and graduate training in the field of transnational history across different departments and faculties of UCL, including the History Department, the School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES), and the departments of Anthropology, History of Art, Scandinavian Studies and Science and Technology Studies. The Centre’s activities are understood to include transnational history in the specific sense of the term, namely the study of historical processes above and beyond the structures of states and nations, as well as comparative history, histoire croisée or Transfergeschichte, from the ancient to the contemporary world. Thus, the Centre aims to provide institutional support to individual and collaborative research projects in transnational history; it offers a framework for graduate studies in the field; and organises related seminars, lectures and workshops.
Conference: China in Latin America - 21st May 2013
DOWNLOAD THE PROGRAMME HERE
A one-day conference convenes specialists working on aspects of China’s involvement with Latin America. The programme will begin with a history of the Chinese diaspora focusing on the different patterns of migration taken by Chinese workers on their journey to the Americas. Against this background speakers will then examine Sino-Latin American diplomacy in the twentieth century. This theme will be analysed through the two sides’ respective political economies and through the impact of China’s investments on emerging markets. Health Diplomacy offers a final perspective through which to trace China in Latin America.
The conference is organised by the UCL Centre for Transnational History and the UCL Centre for Chinese Health and Humanity, with support of the UCL Institute of the Americas and UCL Grand Challenges Intercultural Interactions. The Conference is free to students and academics. To attend please register here: http://chinainlatinamerica.eventbrite.co.uk/
