内容紹介:This symposium brings together scholars from the US, Switzerland andJapan to examine trans-Pacific migrations, circulations, flows andnetworks from the late 19th century until the present. The symposiumconsists of three parts: 1) “The Social and Political History ofWhaling and Fishing in the 19th- and 20th-century Pacific,” 2) “Women,Bodies and Power in the Asia-Pacific,” and 3) “Trans-plantation:Colonial Sugar Networks in the Asia-Pacific.” Our central discussionwill focus on various forms of materials, entities and agencies thatcrisscrossed and connected the Pacific, including people, theenvironment, animals, ships, skills, and ideas. At the same time, wewill consider the meanings and roles of the Pacific Ocean as a spacethrough which multi-layered networks and relationships have beenconstructed between Asia, the Pacific Islands and North America.
