New Horizons in the History of Modern East Asian Science and Technology
As a preparatory first step toward a tenure-track faculty search in the history of modern East Asian Science and Technology to be launched in the fall of 2015, the Department of the History of Science of Harvard University is pleased to invite applications for a workshop to be held in Cambridge, Massachusetts, June 3-5, 2014.
The aim of the workshop is to bring together a small number of junior scholars (untenured faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students within a year of completing their dissertations) from around the world to share and discuss the most exciting recent research in the history of modern East Asian science and technology. The Department of the History of Science will cover the airfare of participants, and arrange as well for their lodgings and meals during the workshop.
Interested applicants are asked to submit the following three items:
1) an abstract (maximum 750 words) that describes not only the content of the applicant’s research, but also its historiographic significance; that is, the abstract should explain the specific ways in which the research opens new horizons in the historical study of modern East Asian science and technology
2) a video of the applicant speaking (maximum three-minutes) about the nature and import of his or her research; this may be as simple as a self-recorded video captured with a computer webcam (please use avi, mp4, or wmv format exported and compressed to a maximum of 60 MB)
3) a one page CV, with basic information about education, employment (if any), and main publications
Applications should be submitted online at https://harvardfas.slideroom.com by February 21, 2014. Applicants will be notified of the results of the application review by the end of March, 2014.
