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.
