Spring is in the Air

We are soon halfway through the spring semester and the days are finally getting longer and warmer. The Centre continues with its lecture series on Korea with the next lecture focusing on the Chinese-North Korean border. Later in March we have a guest researcher staying for two weeks who will enlighten us on the state of Chinese media in one open lecture.

Spring also means that it is time for the annual conference of the Association of Asian Studies (AAS) . This year Nicholas Loubere and myself will attend and discuss Academic Freedom, Academic Integrity, and Open Access Publishing in Asian Studies in one of the many panels.

Our first BA level course on international relations in East Asia and our elective master level courses opens for admissions with deadline 15 April. We are pleased to announce a postdoctoral fellow on Japan's and/or Korea's society so we welcome interested recent Ph.D. graduates to apply (deadline 3 April). In December the Centre will organize a major international conference and Ph.D. workshop together with the Nordic Institute of Asian Studies (NIAS, link) called simply Digital Asia. We have invited a range of well-known international scholars as keynotes so check out the call for papers open now

Finally, a reminder to all students in Lund who have visited Asia recently submit one or more photos to our photo contest which closes on 15th March.

Enjoy the spring and welcome to visit the Centre and the Asia library!
