Week 1 seminar

Our first seminar speaker of the term is Robert Bickers, professor of history at Bristol and director of the British Inter-University China Centre. Prof Bickers is also one of the people behind the Historical Photographs of China website, and he has a blog of his own, too. The title of his seminar is World in motion: professional circuits through 19th-century China. All details are in the poster below. Please join us!

Several of the posters for forthcoming seminars will feature equally camp images. This is pure coincidence (images were sent to me individually by each speaker, not selected by me for the lulz), but it may suggest what I have long suspected: people were just camper in the past. Even old ladies, as you will see in week 5.
