Asian Diversity in Context

Asian Dynamics Initiative is pleased to announce the three day conference 'Asian Diversity in a Global Context'.

The opening day of the conference will be a public event with invited keynote speakers. The following two days will be made up of 10-12 parallel panels and workshops under the common theme of the dynamics of diversity in Asia. The goal is to generate deeper and fuller insights into the political, social, cultural and economic changes facing Asia in the 21st century. Finally, PhD students will have the opportunity to participate in an intensive PhD course over two days from 14-15 November.

Studies of Asia have a long tradition at the University of Copenhagen. 2010 celebrates the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the Asia Section. In continuation of its commitment to Asian Studies, the University of Copenhagen in 2008 launched the ‘Asian Dynamics Initiative’ (ADI) - an interdisciplinary research priority area based in the Faculties of Humanities and Social Sciences. ADI aims at expanding research and teaching on Asia as well as strengthening the university's global networks in studies of Asia.

'Asian Diversity in a Global Context' is the third in the series of annual conferences initiated by ADI and the University of Copenhagen in 2008.
