The CEAS Professional series is a high impact lecture series that brings to campus individuals who do significant work in East Asian studies, but who do so outside of the context of a university. This series diversifies CEAS programing by highlighting authors, journalists, policymakers, film-makers etc. who have made serious contributions to our understanding of current issues in East Asia and connecting East Asia and the United States.
In addition to a keynote lecture, CEAS Professional Series visitors also meet with students in various disciplines to discuss their path into their chosen career. These events draw attention to the variety of careers and opportunities our students can pursue with their East Asian studies credentials and knowledge.
