As part of ASU's commitment to global engagement, sustainability, and future-oriented knowledge and research, the Center for Asian Research has organized a series of virtual lectures for the 2021-2022 academic year on the theme of "Global Asian in a Multipolar World." This virtual lecture series highlights research from prominent scholars in an array of disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, and beyond, broadly centered on Inter-Asian networks and flows of ideas, peoples, and texts across national and linguistic borders.
The Center for Asian Research condemns the recent wave of violence against Asian, Asian-American, and Pacific Islander communities and stands in solidarity with all groups and individuals affected by prejudice and discrimination. We remain committed to combatting these shameful actions through education, and our events and programming reaffirm our dedication to public outreach and engagement.
