The East-West Center Education Program Presents 
Wednesday Evening Seminar
Fall 2017

Research and Community

Featuring a panel of Research Fellows at the East-West Center: Dr. Jefferson Fox, Dr. Andrew Mason, and Dr. Victoria Keener

The seminar this evening is about the intersection between research and community. A panel of researchers from the East-West Center will discuss a variety of ways that researchers and their work may interact with communities outside of the university, looking at both short- and long-term time frames. They will each discuss their own research, then engage in a broader discussion about the value and the role of academic research to have an impact beyond its journal publication.

Jefferson Fox

Dr. Jefferson Fox is Director of the Research Program at the East-West Center. He conducts research on land-use and land-cover change in Asia and the impact of these changes on the region and the global environment.

Andrew Mason

Dr. Andrew Mason is Senior Fellow at the East-West Center and Professor of Economics at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa. He is also co-director of the National Transfer Accounts project, a global effort to improve understanding of how population growth and changing population age structure influence economics, gender and policymaking.

Victoria Keener

Dr. Victoria Keener is Research Fellow at the East-West Center and Principal Investigator of the Pacific Regional Integrated Sciences & Assessments. She conducts research in climate science, and she leads efforts to reduce the vulnerability of Pacific Island communities to climate change.

Wednesday Evening Seminar is an East-West Center student-led initiative supported by the Education Program and a generous gift from Richard H. Cox.
