Research & Pedagogical Collaboration
Each year, the ASDP Alumni Association partners with the ASDP at the East-West Center to organize an academic conference that focuses on the interdisciplinary nature of Asian Stuides. Each conference has a different theme and integrates both research and pedagogical approaches in undergraduate Asian Studies. Many participants seeks ways to infuse their current curricula with Asian modules, themes, and/or courses. Faculty can promote their books at selected times during the conference. Participants come from around the world to engage in this intimate academic meeting. In addition, cultural tours to Asian heritage sites and art musuems in American cities are offered as an experiential component to these conferences.
