  UVM Asian Studies Program Spring 2013

Message from the Director

Molly Thurlow

In a rich variety of ways throughout 2012, students and faculty in the Asian Studies Program at UVM explored the fascinating cultural, social and political dynamics of the East and South Asian worlds both here on campus and overseas.  This edition of our annual e-Newsletter features an array of stories, photos, and videosLuke Dorfman at Buddhist Monastery that bring those adventures to life – provocative lecture events in Burlington, a new study-tour program in Nepal, and several student and faculty sojourns in China and Japan.
