Bringing together graduate students of various geographical regions and historiographical fields, the Twentieth-Century History Workshop is designed as a forum for exchanging different analytical methods and theories, expanding thematic visions, and sharing research ideas with a diverse audience. Each session will be based on a pre-circulated research paper introduced by two commentators and later discussed by the attendees. For the 2017-18 spring term, the workshop is coordinated by Zheng Guan, Serena Ma, and Jonathan Raspe.
