International Workshop: Bureaucratic Encounters

When: 15-16 June 2018. Where: University of Vienna (Lecture Hall 6, Lower Ground floor), Universitätsring 1, 1010 Vienna.

Bureaucracy is all around us and has a tendency to expand. In the late 19th century the state began to exercise increasingly more control and influence over its citizens, for example by imposing rules of registration and identification. Citizens, for their part, responded to the rise of bureaucracy by making use of what the state offered and prescribed for their own purposes. Bureaucracy, however, is not confined to the state authorities: practices from public administration are being borrowed by private organizations, and vice versa. As the conference programme demonstrates, bureaucracy is not a phenomenon existing only in the so-called Western world. The contributions coming from historians, sociologists and social anthropologists span over a period from the early 19th century to the present. They address bureaucratic encounters taking place in (and sometimes also between) Austria, Australia, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Poland, Romania, the Russian and the Habsburg Empires, and Switzerland, thereby allowing for comparative and interdisciplinary approaches.

The program and all further details can be found in the folder.

Public talk by Kent Deng: “China in a global historical context”

The Erasmus Mundus Program Global Studies from a European Perspective presents a public talk by Kent Deng (London School of Economics) on China in a global historical context.

When: May 9,  6pm-7.30pm.

Where: Seminarraum 1, Institut für Afrikawissenschaften (Campus AAKH, Spitalgasse 2, Hof 5).

After the talk we invite to wine and bread.

Organized by Margarete Grandner and Martina Kaller.

Subject: In his talk, Professor Deng will cover three periods in China’s long history with global significance. Firstly, it was the Song Period (960-1279 AD) when China led the world in technology and commerce. We have a good reason to believe that China entered her own age of capitalism. It was a great pity that such a development was brutally interrupted by the Mongol invasion and conquest. Secondly, it was the long period of peace and renaissance from 1368-1800 when China practised Confucianism in full, with benevolence in taxation, private property rights, social welfare, and social mobility and ran the single largest economy in the world of the time. Thirdly, it is 1840-present when China has been going through a roller coaster with violent changes with the combination of internal chaos and external threat until the economy finally stood on its feet again after 1980 as a result of Deng Xiaoping’s reforms.

Short bio: Professor Kent Deng is currently Professor of Economic History, London School of Economics and Political Science and Fellow of the Royal Historical Society. Meanwhile, he has served as visiting professors of 10 universities in China, Japan, Taiwan, Italy and Germany. He has also served Editor of Economic History Series, Palgrave Macmillan Press. His main research interests and academic speciality include (1) Chinese economic growth and development since 1000 AD till the present day, (2) comparative growth and development towards industrialisation and modernity in East Asia and Southeast Asia, (3) globalisation since circa 1600 till the present day, regarding especially shipping and sea power. So far, he has published eight books and 20 peer-reviewed journal articles.
