East Asian Uses of the European Past

This blog is an open platform for discussions of East Asian uses of the European past. It examines how East Asian scholars have adapted emblematic moments, such as the Fall of the Roman Empire, the Renaissance, the Enlightenment, the Industrial and Scientific Revolutions, or the Holocaust, to interpret their own historical experiences and asks how their reflections have reshaped European views of these events. Maintained by students of history, literature, and political thought, the blog aims to connect anyone interested in understanding global co-productions of historical knowledge and their refractions in public discourse. The blog is part of the collaborative research project "East Asian Uses of the European Past: Tracing Braided Chronotypes" (EAU-TBC) that has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 649307.
