Eurasia in the Modern Period:Towards a New World History

This research project seeks a methodology through which to look at Eurasia and the rest of the world as one, rather than depending on existing modes of historical description that are based on nation states and a duality between Europe (the Occident) and Asia (the Orient). It has received a grant-in-aid from the Japanese Society for the Promotion of Sciences (Scientific Research S) to run for five years between 2009 and 2013. The question of how to write a world history of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries will be pursued through joint research.
