< Sugar in Early Modern Asia: Production, Trade and Consumption Culture>

This workshop offers a platform to discuss dynamic changes in Asian societies during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries as an age for the formation of the modern global economy.

Asian sugarcane production developed in the early modern period. Sugar was produced widely around maritime Asia, and sugar was exported not only to Europe but also it was supplied to Asian markets. While Asian regions enjoyed the economic development, the sugar production grew up in the early modern period.

Seven internationally distinguished scholars are invited to this session, who work for the case studies on India, Indonesia, Iran, Japan and Taiwan. After the presentations of their research, this session welcomes two commentators and has a general discussion to uncover invisible but continuous changes in Asian societies towards the nineteenth century.

<Abolition of Slavery as A Global Experience>

This session aims to bring together experts on several different regions to compare and connect phenomenon of abolition of slavery in different societies in order to settle it into the context of world history.

Instead of seeking for an universal definition of slavery, this session focuses on the following phenomenon; namely, since the beginning of the nineteenth century, abolition of slavery was practiced at many societies in this globe. We can observe a tremendous difference of the condition of slavery between the beginning and the end of the nineteenth century.

At the beginning of the nineteenth century, slavery was not uncommon, not unusual, not shameful, not controversial institute in many societies of this glove; at the end of the nineteenth century, on the contrary, this institute was abolished and became illegal, shameful in many societies, and even in regions and countries where slavery was still legal, the debate on its propriety went on. Furthermore, the regions which we do not recognize the existence of slavery were also related to this phenomenon. For example, Chinese labors were "exported" in order to cover the labor shortage as a result of abolition, and abolition of Yujo in Japan has a link to abolition of slavery in other societies. Taking these facts into consideration, the issue on abolition was a globally shared experience, and this is the start point of our discussion.

The key question in the session is why and how abolition of slavery could become a globally shared experience. Nine papers in the session will shed light on various experiences related to this globally shared experience and will firmly place it in the context of world history.
