International Doctoral Workshops and Exchanges
CHS organizes international workshops and exchanges. Competitively selected NU graduate students across subfields of the History Department meet with their peers in or from other parts
At present we have two annual global graduate exchanges—with the School of History at QUEEN MARY UNIVERSITY of LONDON (QMUL) and the Department of History at the
2020-21 Global Graduate Exchanges with QMUL and HKU
For now the CCHS global graduate exchanges have been suspended due to the pandemic.
2019-20 Global Graduate Exchanges with QMUL and HKU
Due to the coronavirus pandemic March 2020 travel to London to take part in a conference at QMUL was initially postponed to mid-September, then canceled. Hong Kong University has cancelled its annual May History Symposium and so the 2019-20 exchange will not happen.
2018-19 Global Graduate Exchanges with QMUL and HKU
- In Spring 2019 a group from QMUL and one from HKU will come to Northwestern to take part in the April 12 conference on “Walls and Bridges: Migration and Its Histories” and other Center events.
- In 2018 a group of three graduate students and Professor John Carroll traveled from the University of Hong Kong to Evanston to engage in CCHS activities and participate in our April 20 graduate conference on "Resistance in History."
- A group of NU History grads and faculty went to London the week of March 11-18 (Winter quarter Reading Week) met with QMUL peers and take part in the March 15 graduate conference on "Separation and Separatism." Yuri Doolan, Brian Forman, Andrea Rosengarten, and Guangshuo Yang presented papers at the conference, while Michelle Bezark and Andrea Christmas chaired panels at the conference and conducted research in London archives. Professor Sarah Maza, who accompanied the group, gave a talk at QMUL on historians' use of childhood in their work.
- A group traveled to Hong Kong for the annual HKU History Spring Symposium on Modern Asian History in early May: Yuri Doolan, Lois Hao, Norman Joshua, and Melody Tse Yin Shum, with Prof. Haydon Cherry.
