Social Sciences Building (SOS) B40, USC
The UCLA-USC Joint East Asian Studies Center (JEASC) is proud to host its third annual conference and graduate professional development workshop entitled "Asia and the Global South." The goal of this colloquium is to help graduate students and faculty comment on each other’s work as a kind of professional engagement and development intended to bring people from different disciplines together. This year's topic is designed to cover the myriad of ways in which Asian states, firms, groups and individuals are engaging governments, societies, economies, and cultures in world regions other than Europe and North America. From Chinese peacekeepers and business interests in Africa to Japanese ODA and Korean trade relations with Latin America, a host of important issues are beginning to be examined by social scientists and humanists.
RSVPs are now closed.
