CAORC sponsored the panel discussion, Teaching Asia Beyond the Ivory Tower: The American Overseas Research Centers and Broad Educational Engagement, at the 2019 Association for Asian Studies Annual Conference, held in Denver on March 23, 2019.
The panel featured representatives from several overseas research centers—the American Institute of Indian Studies, Center for Khmer Studies, American Center for Mongolian Studies, and American Institute of Pakistan Studies—who discussed original programming that provides unique international learning experiences to educational communities that are too often underserved and underrepresented within traditional academia.
