Asian Studies Initiative
A New Paradigm for Asian Studies at Notre Dame
An Asian studies initiative at Notre Dame funded by US Department of Education's Undergraduate International Studies & Foreign Language (UISFL) program aims to advance Asian language and area studies university-wide while it supports the University’s mission to internationalize the campus’s curriculum and intellectual life.
The award, administered by the Kellogg Institute, represents the culmination of an unusually large collaborative effort underway for several years. Collaborators include the Center for Asian Studies, the Center for the Study of Languages and Cultures, the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures, and the Institute for Scholarship in the Liberal Arts, as well as faculty in Anthropology, Business, Theology, and Film, Television and Theatre.
