What Is Asia?

A recent Journal of Asian Studies special issue questioned the ‘meaning’ of Asia in the current [...]and future world. In a time that many have already called the “Asian Century,” this panel, in collaboration with the Boston University Center for the Study of Asia, continues the discussion started by the journal. The panel was moderated by the Director of the Pardee Center Professor Adil Najam, and featured academically diverse points of view from professors M. David Eckel (BU Religion), Robert Hefner (BU Anthropology), and Eugenio Menegon (BU History).

Hosted by the Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future on February 14, 2011.
