Rethinking Asian Studies: Taking Asia as Method

When: Mar 19 2015 (All day) until Mar 21 2015 (All day)
Where: Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel, Branson, Missouri

Asian cultures and societies are now regularly studied in undergraduate humanities, social science, and business courses in an effort to create a more internationalized curriculum. Addressing the histories and contemporary dynamics of Asia as objects of study in building global cultural literacy is a useful beginning. But how do we enable Asian perspectives to take on a greater role in informing and shaping our critical engagement with both the historical and contemporary dynamics of Asia? In keeping with the growing movement toward “Asian studies in Asia,” the 2015 ASDP National Conference invites papers that “think through” how to bring Asian perspectives to bear in diversifying the undergraduate experience. Faculty and students are invited to submit papers discussing their efforts to understand and incorporate Asian perspectives in their own teaching and learning.

This year, the ASDP National Conference will be hosted by Missouri State University and held in Branson, Missouri at the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel. The ASDP National Conference is an annual event that provides an opportunity for ASDP alumni and other interested college and university faculty members to share research related to Asian cultures and societies, as well as strategies for effectively infusing Asian content into undergraduate humanities, social science, business, and science curricula.
