East Asia by the Book! CEAS Author Talks

About the East Asia by the Book! CEAS Author Talks

Initiated in 2016, this annual series showcases CEAS faculty, alumni, and special guests who provide author talks and book launches as a way to engage the broader community in conversations regarding key scholarship on East Asia. In partnership with the Seminary Co-op Bookstore, the East Asia by the Book! CEAS Author Talks features a presentation by the author(s) that is often facilitated through conversation with a discussant, following by a question and answer session with the audience.
