Clément Fabre

Clément Fabre is a Ph.D. candidate in Contemporary History affiliated to the CHAC (Centre d'Histoire de l'Asie contemporaine) at University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and to the UMR Sirice. His research deals with the role played by Chinese bodies in the construction of both Western power over China and Western knowledges about China (1839-1914), through a connected study of French, British and American diplomatic and missionary archives, travel accounts and scientific literature. His works articulate the history of interactions in an imperial context (both diplomatic, medical and everyday interactions) with the history of medical and anthropological knowledge within a transnational framework. He is also a tutor in the history of Asia, Europe and in historiography at University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, a board member of the Société d'histoire de la révolution de 1848 et des révolutions du XIXe siècle and the Société française d'histoire des outre-mers, and a member of public history magazine L'Histoire's editorial team.
