You are invited to attend a Welcome Morning Tea for Professor Guoqi Xu, from the University of Hong Kong, who has recently joined the History program as a Faculty of Arts Asia Scholar. The Morning Tea will take place on Wednesday 27 August at 10.00am in the Seventh Floor Staff Common Room, Arts West. If you would like to attend this event, please RSVP to Hannah Loney at <firstname.lastname@example.org> by Monday 25 August for catering purposes. If anyone is able to bake a cake for the occasion this would be much appreciated – please let Hannah know in advance.
Professor Xu will be based at the University of Melbourne for one month per year over the next three years, and will make an important contribution to the teaching of our program. He is a distinguished historian of Chinese and global history, WW1 and Asia, as well as Sino-foreign (and especially US) relations. He has published extensively in these fields. His current research projects explore ideas of “China and Chineseness”, and Asia and the Great War (under contract for Oxford University Press).
