Our Annual Themes

2012-2013: Young Asia

In 2012-13, BUCSA’s theme was “Young Asia.” Asia is the cradle of some of the world’s most ancient civilizations. Yet it also is, for the most part, a young continent in terms of its current demographics. Asian societies face new challenges and opportunities unheard of in human history. Understanding how Asian young people create new subcultures; tackle political, economic, and environmental plight; and continuously reinvent their relationship with tradition, with previous generations, and with global phenomena, is a way to keep track of the pulsating life of this continent. Talks, documentary screenings, a movie festival, musical events, and more, form our year-long thread, illuminating the multifaceted aspects of this important topic.
