“Global Networks for Asian Studies” features leaders from global Asian Studies institutions in dialogue on crucial issues in the field of Asian Studies. Moderated by AAS Past President Christine Yano, the online roundtable addresses concerns regarding global inequities, support for young scholars, and future directions in Asian Studies.

Panelists will discuss a core set of questions and concerns posed prior to the live roundtable. Following discussion among the panelists, we will open the floor to audience questions. The Digital Dialogue is free and open to all who register for the event. Following the live roundtable, the video will be available on our website and Vimeo channel for public viewing.
