Austronesians and the Southern Seas

Date:  Tuesday, 16 April 2019
Time:  6:30 – 8:00pm
Venue:  Seminar Room, G/F, Main Library, The University of Hong Kong (Directions)

All are welcome. Please register here for access to library.

The speaker will share insights from his new book, Empire of the Winds: The Global Role of Asia’s Great Archipelago, which looks at two thousand plus years in the history of the now 400 million non-Chinese people who occupy most of the coasts of the South China, Java and Sulu seas. Their global role in sailing and trading puts China’s current claims into the perspective of two millennia of history.
