The Asian Institute presents

Asia Sitings/Citing Asias:
Asian Studies at the University of Toronto, 2016

What is Asian Studies today, and where is it going? Join us for an open dialogue among faculty members affiliated with the Asian Institute at the Munk School of Global Affairs as they discuss their visions for Asian Studies at the University of Toronto. Representing disciplines from across the humanities and social sciences, panelists — who are the current leaders of specific programs within the Asian Institute — will reflect on the ways they understand the legacies of area studies in their own research, how they read contemporary re-articulations of state and non-state power, and what they anticipate to be key issues in the present and future of Asian Studies. They will also put this discussion into the context of their programming agendas at the Asian Institute.

This event is free an open to all. Registration is required. For further information, please contact the Asian Institue at 416-946-8996
