Concerned Asian Scholars, 55 Years Later: A Symposium

Friday, May 10, 2024
9:00 AM-5:30 PM
1010 Weiser Hall Map
The Committee of Concerned Asian Scholars (CCAS) was founded in 1968 in the wake of the US aggression in Vietnam. Fifty-five years later, what lessons might be drawn from CCAS' efforts to practice anti-imperialist research? Join us for a full day of intergenerational conversations among the founding and early members of CCAS, editors of critical Asian studies journals, and younger scholars working on Asia. We will discuss the place of politically committed scholarship in the academy and the role of the public intellectual in our society, all in order to ask: What does it mean to be a scholar concerned about Asia in the US today?
