Photographs and audio are now available from the December 3, 2014 event “East Asian Historical Thought in Comparative Perspective: What History Is, Knows, Does: The West.” The event, co-sponsored by the Department of History, featured Eelco Runia, University of Groningen, Carol Gluck, George Sansom Professor of History at Columbia University, and Harry Harootunian, Senior Research Scholar at the Weatherhead East Asian Institute.
Professors Gluck, Harootunian, and Runia participated in a two-hour panel discussion on the historiography of The West. Their conversation included a question and answer session with the audience and time for informal discussion over light refreshments.
This event was the final installment in a three-part series that explored the historical study of Japan, China, and The West in a comparative perspective.
