Carola Hein (TU Delft) and Yanchen Sun (Tianjin University) are looking for participants who are examining treaty ports in Asia and planning networks that link them. In this context, the treaty ports are port cities in Asia that were opened to foreign trade and residence. Examples could include Yokohama, Kobe, Shanghai, Tianjin, Busan, Incheon, etc. These treaty ports acted as doors through which foreign powers introduced Western planing ideas into these Asia countries, and test grounds for these new ideas.
