The Hofstra Cultural Center, in conjunction with the Mid-Atlantic Association for Asian Studies (MAR-AAS) and the New York Conference on Asian Studies (NYCAS), will host an international conference that reflects on the theme Asia Transforming: Old Values and New Presences to further our understanding of how ongoing economic, social and political transformations have challenged present day perceptions of Asian cultural identities.
Topics may include, but are not limited to the following: interrogation of notions of hybridity, Diaspora and migration; explorations of global Asian cosmopolitanisms/transnational culture; and the impact of globalization. Keynote speakers will include the President of the Association of Asian Studies and other distinguished Asianists. In addition, the conference will feature a Teaching Asia Workshop, art exhibitions and cultural events.
