APWARS Project invite applications from postdoctoral scholars for an interdisciplinary workshop, which will serve as a fresh outlook to the study of World War II in the Asia-Pacific from a European perspective, scheduled to be held on 2-3 March 2018 in Paris.
The upcoming workshop focuses on different topics including the origins, the political, military and social aspects of World War II in the Asia-Pacific as well as the representation of the war in popular media and the legacy of the conflict (justice, memory, reconciliation). It offers the possibility for five post-doctoral students based in Europe to present their approach to World War II in the Asia-Pacific. The workshop aims to (1) improve perspectives and methods in comparative studies, (2) share knowledge about European perspectives on World War II in the Asia-Pacific. Postdoctoral scholars will be required to present their research and methodology and present a case study. Each participant will be offered 300 euros in order to cover travel expenses. They will also be offered the chance to join the next workshop at Hitotsubashi University in Tokyo on 22-29 July 2018. Applicants should be postdoctoral scholars who have teaching experience. The language for the workshop is English.
