Lecture by Professor John E. Woods (Professor, Departments of History and of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, University of Chicago)
"Rethinking Asian Studies"


Date: May 9, 2017 18:00-19:30

Venue: Room 303, Institute for Advanced Studies on Asia, The University of Tokyo (東京大学東洋文化研究所大会議室)

This lecture will address the development of the concept of Asian studies in the United States since the 1950s and how that conception has changed in recent years. Prof. Woods’ approach to this topic is largely autobiographical since he was educated and has taught within the area studies paradigm for almost 50 years at the University of Chicago. It seems that now is an appropriate time to reconfigure received models and revise them in a broader and more comprehensive perspective.

The lecture is open to the public.
This event is co-hosted by the Institute for Advanced Studies on Asia,UTokyo;
U-PARL (Uehiro Project for the Asian Research Library), UTokyo;
