New York Conference on Asian Studies

This conference is dedicated to looking forward to post-pandemic life as well as examining the impact of pandemic life – both subtle and profound, positive and negative- on Asian lives and the field of Asian Studies. How did the pandemic impact Asian lives? In what ways did the pandemic change the trajectory of Asian lives and Asian Studies and how should we respond? What factors influenced the field in the past year and how will that affect behavior and research going forward?
