ADI Conference 2010

Asian Diversity in a Global Context

Asian Diversity in a Global Context conference banner

The opening day of the conference featured four invited keynote speakers. The following two days were made up of parallel panels and workshops under the common theme of the dynamics of diversity in Asia to generate deeper and fuller insights into the political, social, cultural and economic changes facing Asia in the 21st century. Finally, PhD students had 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 celebrated 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' was the third in the series of annual conferences initiated by ADI and the University of Copenhagen in 2008.
