The Centre for History and Economics is delighted to announce a new research project to be undertaken at the University of Cambridge and at Harvard University over the period 2010-14. The project, Sites of Asian Interaction: Networks, Ideas, Archives, is one component of the Centre for History and Economics’ new programme on ‘Exchanges of Economic, Legal and Political Ideas’ and will run concurrently with it. It has been made possible by a grant from the Newton Trust, and develops a theme of an SSRC funded-workshop on ‘Sites of Inter-Asian Interaction’ in Dubai in February 2008.
We are delighted to welcome Natasha Pairaudeau, a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Faculty of History working within the Sites of Asian Interaction Project at the Centre.
