In 2008, the political economist Dani Rodrik argued that the globalization consensus was dead after the great turmoil in international finance. Then we witnessed another predicament of the globalization consensus in 2016, the year of the Brexit referendum and Trump’s victory in the US presidential election. More political turbulence is expected in 2017. With this in mind, the third international conference organized by the JSPS joint research project “Developing an International Research and Education Program on Asia-Pacific War History: Comparison and Synthesis” will discuss the impact of the current crisis in the globalization consensus on the wider arena of practicing history, i.e., writing, teaching, and disseminating knowledge and perspectives about the modern and contemporary history of war and violence.
