Postgraduate students are invited to apply for the second Nation Empire Globe Postgraduate Intensive to be held at the University of Sydney on July 23 - 25, 2008. Its theme is “Transnational / International History.” Places will be offered to around twenty (20) research students from any University.
Faculty members participating include:
Dr Sunil Amrith (Birkbeck)
Professor David Armitage (Harvard)
Associate Professor Alison Bashford (Sydney)
Professor Akira Iriye (Harvard)
Professor Glenda Sluga (Sydney)
The Intensive aims to explore the relationship between the recent trend to transnational history and the conceptualisation of the international as a space and form of interpellation that is both constructed out of, and alternative to, nations.
It is for postgraduates who see their research fitting into either transnational or international history, and for those who see both the transnational and the international as concepts relevant to, and constructive for their enterprise.
It is also an invitation to postgraduates to reflect upon the international as a concept that shifts attention away from nations and onto the forms that transnational spaces and experiences take, and have taken in the past.
