The program for Contemplating the Rise of Asian Cities consists of three afternoon workshops, held on the first Monday of each month over the course of the Spring 2016 Academic Semester. Each workshop will focus on a single theme, and will highlight the interdisciplinary work of three invited speakers from the humanities and the humanistic social-sciences. Each workshop will include perspectives from East Asia, South Asia and Southeast Asia. Each speaker will present twenty minutes papers, followed by a seminar-style discussion with the audience. The discussion will be designed to maximize audience interaction, and will be moderated by a members of the Yale faculty involved in the study of Asian cities.

All three afternoon workshops will be held in Room 208, Whitney Humanities Center, 53 Wall Street.

Workshops will begin at 3:30 pm.

Workshops will be followed by extended discussion. Refreshments and snacks will be served.

At the end of the semester, on May 9th, a special symposium, discussion, and plenary session will engage Yale faculty and students from across the university in an extended discussion of Asian Cities. That final event will be held at the Greenberg Conference Center and will begin at 4:30 pm.
