The Center for East Asian Studies at UW-Madison
The Center for East Asian Studies (CEAS) is the focal point connecting East Asia to the University of Wisconsin-Madison. CEAS is dedicated to all aspects of research, education and outreach related to China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and Mongolia.
CEAS encourages and supports the cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary study of East Asia. Our center helps to coordinate the community for the study of East Asia on campus, across the UW system, and throughout the state of Wisconsin. Finally, We work to disseminate knowledge about East Asia to better the education and cultural literacy of UW students as well as the general public.
CEAS Symposium and Reception October 7
What is the future of East Asian Studies? As the humanities increasingly integrates quantitative analysis, and social science moves ever farther from questions of culture or regional difference, what research questions are best positioned to drive analysis of East Asia? If we were to open a countervailing tendency, which areas harbor the greatest potential?
These are the kinds of questions that will be explored at the CEAS Symposium, Friday, Oct. 7, 1:30 - 5;30 p.m. at the Pyle Center. Click here to see the full schedule. CEAS reception will follow the symposium.
