Call for papers: International conference, ‘Treaty ports in Modern China’ University of Bristol, 7-8th July 2011
Conference website and full Call for papers: http://www.bristol.ac.uk/tianjin-project/events/tianjin-project/events/treatyports.html This conference, organised by the ESRC-funded project ‘Tianjin Under Nine Flags: Colonialism in Comparative Perspective’, aims to bring together scholars working on different aspects of the worlds of the treaty ports across China between the 1840s and 1940s. We invite proposals for papers on individual concessions, networks of concessions, or on the other facets of the treaty port world, such as extraterritoriality, the foreign-dominated Chinese Maritime Customs, maritime space, foreign communities, consular services etc. We seek through this conference to understand the specificities of unique concessions and their host cities, but also how they interacted, were inter-related, and are to be understood in broader comparative terms. Individual paper abstracts (max: 500 words), or panel proposals (3 paper abstracts plus panel 500 word panel rationale), should be sent to the Project Administrator, Annabel Lander firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than 31st January 2011. Please list the conference title in your email subject line, the title of the title of the paper at the top of the abstract, and at the end list name, institutional affiliation and contact information. We aim to take forward selected papers towards publication. Informal enquires to the project director: Professor Robert Bickers (email@example.com).
