Chen Hao (Shanghai Jiaotong Univ.): A Tentative Interpretation of the Rise of Global History in China
20. Nov., 16:15 - 17:45
Whether in a democratic or authoritarian society, it is not uncommon to explain academic currents by taking political and economic factors into consideration. However, the impetus in the intellectual realm itself shall never be disregarded. The recent development of Global History in China can be explained adequately by Chinese intellectuals’ persistent endeavor to stage global publics, rather than its pursuit of political and economic power worldwide.
Chen Hao is an associate professor of history at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. He received his Ph. D at Free University of Berlin (2016) and is the 2023 recipient of the Göttingen Academy’s humanities award. His academic interests include Global History and history of Inner Asia, especially the Turkic-speaking peoples. He has published his first monography A History of the Second Türk Empire (ca. 682-745 AD), Brill, 2021. His forthcoming book deals with the historical semantics of “Turk”. The current project he is working on is about a 17th century Central Asian historian Abu al-Ghazi Bahadur.
