Dean’s Symposium: East Asian Studies

The next Dean’s Symposium event will be “East Asian Studies” on Tuesday, Feb. 16 in the Center for the Arts (Building 1P), Room 223 from 2:30pm to 4:00pm.

This spring, we inaugurate CSI’s interdisciplinary program in East Asian Studies, and three faculty members will discuss their scholarly interests and recent work in the field. A cultural geographer discusses his research on the Japanese civilian experience of air raids in World War II, and how he has made that work accessible in a new book and a bilingual digital archive. A philosopher proposes that the sixth-century (BCE) teachings of Confucius can illuminate our 21st-century understanding of how to lead an ethical life. A historian analyzes how events of World War II and the early Cold War shaped the East Asia of today, and speculates about future developments.
