Global Asia Studies Open House

Join us on Wednesday, October 27th for an Open House at the University of Toronto Scarborough, celebrating Global Asia Studies, a unique inter-disciplinary program that investigates Asia in a dynamic global and diasporic context.

 The last few decades have witnessed the growing importance of China, India, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, and other parts of Asia in the world's geopolitical and economic spheres. Contacts and cultural exchanges between North America and Asia are increasing in scope in every sphere.  UTSC’s cutting-edge Global Asia Studies program aims to meet the rising demand for knowledge about Asian societies, cultures, and contemporary politics while also working to meet the distinct needs and experiences of UTSC students.

To commemorate the one-year anniversary of this unique program, faculty and students will be on hand at the Open House to discuss the courses, research and outreach to the global community in their efforts to expand our understanding of global Asia.

When: Wednesday, October 27, 4-6 pm

Where: Arts & Administration, AA160, 1265 Military Trail, Toronto

Who: Opening remarks from Professor William Bowen, Chair of the Department of Humanities, and Professor Li Chen, Program Director of Global Asia Studies
