Beyond Versailles: Reverberations of World War I in Asia

A multinational symposium that will bring together contributors of an edited volume to explore common research questions on the legacy of World War I in Northeast Asia. (20 months)

This project is a collaborative inquiry into the events and implications of the year 1919 for states and peoples across Northeast Asia. It asks, how did Northeast Asians shape their own realities, and the broader global situation, in the post-Great War world? Collaborators will conduct original research and analysis, viewing this pivotal year through the lenses of diplomacy, nation-building, social and cultural change, and the aftereffects of war. The project will culminate in the publication of a volume of essays, a summary article for publication in an academic journal, and a public symposium, all to occur in the centenary year of the Treaty of Versailles to draw attention to our interpretation of new beginnings in Asia after the War. We will demonstrate that the diplomatic and military endeavors, intellectual pursuits, and nation-building efforts of individuals and groups within Northeast Asia challenged European and American hegemony, and wrought fissures within the world order.
