Dr Konrad Lawson will be joining the School of History and the Centre for Transnational History in September 2013. Konrad specialises in modern East Asian history, in particular on the Japanese Empire, Korea and China from the mid-nineteenth century onward. After completing his PhD at Harvard in 2012, he is currently enjoying a Max-Weber Postdoctoral Fellowship at the European University Institute (EUI), Florence. With Konrad’s expertise on East Asian history we decided to broaden the modules we offer as part of the School of History’s Modern History MLitt programme. In addition to “Crossing Borders. European History in Transnational Perspectives“, we are now offering “Global History, Globalisation and its Histories“. For further details please refer to Teaching.
