  UVM Global & Regional Studies Spring 2012

Message from the Director

Erik Esselstrom

The Asian Studies Program at UVM continued to thrive in 2011 and we are excited about the many great opportunities that await us all in 2012.  Dozens of majors and minors in the program spent time traveling, studying, and working throughout the East, South, and Southeast Asia last year, and our program faculty continued to engage in dynamic scholarly activity around the Asian region while also providing first-rate classroom instruction here on campus.  At present, more than 150 undergraduate students at UVM are pursuing majors or minors in Asian Studies, Chinese and/or Japanese – a trend that clearly reflects the significance of Asia in our world and the enthusiastic desire of our students to cultivate a sophisticated understanding of the socio-cultural frameworks, political economies and historical traditions at work in China, Japan and India today.

Please enjoy our spring 2012 newsletter and learn more about the many wonderful events and fantastic opportunities available to students with an interest in Asia at UVM.
