Chair of Global History for Martin Dusinberre in Zurich

Dec 28, 2014

HCTS Associate Fellow Martin Dusinberre has been appointed Chair of Global History at the University of Zurich.

After obtaining his DPhil from the University of Oxford in 2008, Dr. Dusinberre was appointed Lecturer in Modern Japanese History at Newcastle University, a position he held until 2014. He first came to the Cluster "Asia and Europe in a Global Context" in September 2011 at the invitation of Prof. Dr. Harald Fuess, to work on the "Asian Sea" project. From 2012-2014, Dr. Dusinberre remained at the Cluster as an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Research Fellow; he was also made an Associate Fellow of the Heidelberg Centre for Transcultural Studies in January 2014.

His research focuses on modern Japanese and global history, in particular migration history in the Asia-Pacific region, maritime history, and the history of the Japanese empire. He is author of "Hard Times in the Hometown: A History of Community Survival in Modern Japan" (2012), and is currently writing a global history of Japan in the late-nineteenth century as seen through the career of a passenger steamship, the "Yamashiro-maru".

Dr. Dusinberre will take up his new position at the University of Zurich in February 2015.
