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 Fall Lecture Series starts Oct. 19

The Center for East Asian Studies launched a new noon lecture series in 2015 (see photos below). The 2016-17 program will be held Wednesdays in Ingraham Hall, Room 336. Snacks provided! CEAS is proud to announce the Fall Semester 2016 lecture lineup:

Oct. 19: "Christian Fundamentalism and Political Engagement in South Korea" by Dr. Eunsook Jung, faculty associate with the UW-Madison's Department of Political Science.

Nov. 16: "Taekwondon in America" by UW History Professor Charles Kim

Dec. 7: "Figuring on Salvation: Daoist Scrolls, Saving Soulds and the Demonic Saviour Wang Lingguan at the Ming Court," by Asian Languages and Cultures Doctoral Candidate Michael Naparstek.


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.
