last modified Dec 15, 2016 03:57 PM

More than 25 scholars from around the world came for three days to Cambridge University (9th -12th December, 2016) to discuss their new research at the international conference: "The Reconstruction of East Asia, 1945-1965." This event forms part of Dr Barak Kushner's 5-year ERC project, The Dissolution of the Japanese Empire and the Struggle for Legitimacy in Postwar East Asia. 

Scholars from Asia, Europe and North America were divided into eight panels and were joined by the Project team and Cambridge-based historians and graduate students to engage in fruitful discussions. The best presentations will be chosen for publication in an edited volume, leading to valuable contributions to the existing literature on the history, politics, social, and military conditions of post-imperial reconstruction of East Asia.
