Over the past several decades, scholarship has challenged the traditional association between monarchies and pre-modern politics. Works by Takashi Fujitani and Maurizio Peleggi, for example, have explored some of the ways in which Asian monarchies responded to global changes and refashioned imperial authority for the modern era. This panel intends to build on these foundational works to explore the relationship between monarchies, imperial authority, and the development of modern nation-states in Asia.
