2022 Conversation with Scholars Series

In the summer of 2022, Global Asia Initiative (GAI) at Duke University launches new project to foster the conversation between scholars working on different geographical regions, different time periods and different disciplines. GAI invites scholars of Asian Studies and translational history to our platform to introduce their research. We are going to discuss pressing issues facing human society and our shared planetary future. Guests of this project range from historians to scientists. Their research expertise spans Asia and beyond. The series has a particular focus on environment and society in Asia. We also welcome other TransAsia themes.
