The Chair for Global History brings the contributions of both history and area studies to the still developing field of global history. Its temporal frame is roughly the eighteenth to the twentieth centuries. Areas of research include socioeconomic transformations in Japan and Asia from the mid-nineteenth century onwards; Japanese imperialism and imperial rivalries in and across the Asia-Pacific region; the history of Japanese and Chinese overseas diaspora communities; the movement of knowledge and goods across the Asia-Pacific region; the relationship between maritime histories and traditional land-based histories; and the wider challenges of studying connections and entanglements in the modern world.
