Asian Studies Opportunities 

September 6, 2016

We enjoyed meeting many of you at Get On Board Day! Check out the upcoming opportunities for connecting with Asia here in Tuscaloosa and one of the many reasons to emphasize Asia.
If you have questions about the Asian Studies minor and what you can do with the minor, or other announcements, contact the Director of Asian Studies at

Asian Studies T-shirts
Do you have an Asian Studies t-shirt? We will be giving some away in select Asian Studies courses throughout the semester, so you might get especially lucky one day in class, getting a t-shirt along with learning something fascinating and useful in the study of Asia. 

Movie in November 

Did you miss the chance to screen the 1999 film Ghost Dog last month? We will have another film screening and discussion on November 10, when we watch the romantic comedy Bend It Like Beckham, which focuses on sports and gender in a British Indian family. Stay tuned for more details, and view the trailer while you wait.

Upcoming Roundtable on China, History, and Language
How has Mandarin spread among the ordinary people in China across time? That question will be central in an upcoming public event on October 10, featuring Janet Chen, professor at Princeton University, and Robert Culp, professor at Bard College. The presentations and discussion will be at 7:00 pm in Gorgas 205, so save the date and time. We will announce more details as they become available.
