Our interdisciplinary forum on the history of trans-Pacific relations

ERC AdG Transpacific

Transpacific Lecture Series

The lecture series is an international and interdisciplinary forum for our wider research group and for scholars engaged in the history of trans-Pacific relations or parts of it. We aim to provide a platform for discussions on related topics in their widest interpretation, focusing on cross-cultural and trans-regional interactions, from early modern Chinese, Japanese, Southeast Asian or Spanish American history, maritime archaeology, historical geography, the history of science (e.g. medicine, botany, geography, navigation and rutters, shipbuilding, etc.) to environmental and climate history, diffusion of ideas, cultures, and migration.

To register for the events, please send us an e-mail.
