Vincent K.L. Chang is a Lecturer at the Leiden University Institute for Area Studies (LIAS) and a Research Fellow at the LeidenAsiaCentre. His teaching and research revolve around modern Chinese history and diplomacy, historical memory, and the international relations of East Asia
As a lawyer and historian of modern China, I specialize in China’s modern diplomacy and foreign relations, with particular expertise in the history and memory of World War II/Asia-Pacific War and its impact on present-day Chinese notions of global governance and international law.
I supervise research on topics related to modern Chinese statecraft (1840-present) and historical memory, particularly those focusing on the Republican era (1911-1949) and the Cold War period. I will also consider projects on China’s contemporary foreign policy concerning global governance and international law, East Asian regionalism, Sino-Japanese relations, Sino-EU relations, and Sino-Dutch relations.
