Justin Jacobs Talk

Justin Jacobs
Francis Scott, Key Room 2120 (Merrill Room)
Wednesday, April 16, 2014 - 12:30 PM

The Nathan and Jeanette Miller Center for Historical Studies invites you to a lunch talk by Professor Justin Jacobs (American University) on Wednesday April 16th from 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. in Francis Scott Key Hall, Room 2120 (The Merrill Room).  This talk is titled "Publishing and the Field of Transnational History." 

Professor Jacobs, a specialist in modern Chinese history, published the lead article in the American Historical Review in 2010, while he was a graduate student.  In his talk, he will provide tips on publishing as a graduate student, as well as discuss the growing field of transnational history. 

Prof. Jacobs' research concerns the legacy and inheritance of Chinese empire during the twentieth century. His first book manuscript, Empire Among Empires: Xinjiang and the Modern Chinese State, examines these themes against the backdrop of six decades of Han rule along the Muslim borderlands of northwestern China. He is currently working on a new book project, “Desert Sahibs: Aurel Stein and the Plunder of China” which aims to reframe Western archaeological expeditions to China within a dual context of global and domestic Chinese history.

 

The Miller Center would like to thank Professor Sarah Cameron for her help in organizing this event.
