Connected Worlds: New Approaches across Pre-Modern Studies

Conference/Symposium: Other UCB Archaeology | January 24 | 3-6:30 p.m. | 370 Dwinelle Hall


Institute of East Asian Studies (IEAS)


This multidisciplinary conference brings together scholars interested in the study of interconnectedness during the pre-modern period. The panels will cross traditional disciplinary boundaries based on geography or periodization, and deal with themes like trade and travel, cross-cultural exchange, empire-building, and the making of ethnographic and geographic ‘knowledge.’ The conference also features four talks by invited speakers from Yale University, Stanford University, California State University (Chico), and the University of Southern California.

"Connected Worlds" is sponsored by the Walter and Elise Haas Chair in Asia Studies and the Haas Junior Scholars Program at the Institute of East Asian Studies, with additional support provided by the Classics Department, the Graduate Group in Ancient History and Mediterranean Archaeology, the History Department, the History of Art Department, the Townsend Center for the Humanities, the Center for Chinese Studies, the Center for Japanese Studies, the English Department, the Program in Medieval Studies, and the Division of Student Affairs.
