The Association for Asian Studies will host the roundtable discussion "Business, War, and Political Networks in Republican China: The Work of Parks Coble and New Directions in the Field" at their annual conference on March 24, 2019 at 9:00 a.m. in Denver, Colorado.
The roundtable "celebrates Parks Coble's important scholarly contributions to research in Chinese business, political, and social history during the Republican period and simultaneously explores the past, current, and future trajectories of these sub-fields," according to the event website. "Coble's first book on the Shanghai capitalists and their complex relationship with the Nationalist government was pathbreaking. His studies on Japanese-Chinese interactions are required reading for any historian interested in issues related to war, collaboration, political factionalism, and economic survival."
More information, including the discussants, is available on the event website.
