[Virtual Conference] Registration Opens: 1st Joint Atlantic Seminar for the History of East Asian Science, Technology, and Medicine

The inaugural Joint Atlantic Seminar for the History of East Asian Science, Technology, and Medicine (JAS-EASTM) will be held virtually on April 16-17 by Johns Hopkins University. Registration is free and open to all.

Beginning with a plenary lecture by Marta Hanson, this conference will feature four panels:

  • Public Health
  • Infrastructure
  • System of Knowledge—Technological
  • System of Knowledge—Medical

The panels will be round tables based on pre-circulated papers that will be posted on the JAS-EASTM website two weeks prior to the conference. The papers will only be accessible to registered conference participants and will be open to comments. For more details and the preliminary schedule, please visit https://jaseastm.org.

To gain access to pre-circulated papers, Zoom links for panels, and Gather Town receptions, please register on the website.

JAS-EASTM seeks to inspire a tradition of collegiality across the eastern seaboard, including the Northeastern United States and Southeastern Canada. The goal of the seminar is to bring together scholars at various stages of their careers working on an array of topics related to the history of science, technology, and medicine in East Asia. JAS-EASTM will provide a friendly setting for scholars to engage with each other’s work and receive supportive feedback. The 1st JAS-EASTM is co-sponsored by Johns Hopkins University’s History of Science and Technology Department, History of Medicine Department, and the Program for East Asian Studies.
