Asia Center Seminar Series

The Asia Center Seminar Series, previously the Modern Asia Seminar Series, is the longest running of the Asia Center’s seminar series. The series was instituted to bring senior scholars, government officials, journalists and other specialists to speak on key issues from a regional perspective. Recent talks in the seminar series have focused on the Brexit crisis and its impact on Asia, community organizing in Japan and China, the Chinese diaspora, spatial planning in Cambodian Thai refugee camps, the connections between Chinese films and early Japanese animation, and reporting on Asia, which featured current Nieman Foundation fellows at Harvard.
