From what I see and learn from Singapore…シンガポールで考えたこと徒然

Inaugural AAS-in-Asia ended successfully in Singapore. アジア初の全米アジア学会終了。

National University of Singapore (NUS) successfully hosted its first ever AAS (Association of Asian Studies) outside of the US for the first time in Asia!  The roundtable moderated by Prof Ted Bestor from Harvard was fascinating enough to challenge what the "heritage" means to you.  Issues of politics, public/collective/individual history, and legacy of colonialism became apparent as the issues and challenages to think about this. Very interesring!   It's going to be hosted in Taiwan next year and then in Kyoto in 2016!  So nice that these chances would encourage more participations by scholars from both the US and Asia.
