Message from the Director
Friends and Colleagues. I joined IU as the Director of the Pan Asia Institute in August of 2017, and have been delighted to be a part of this unique initiative with its focus on sustaining the study of wider Asia via a close relationship between the two partner universities IU and Australia National University. The Institute continues to support short-term faculty and graduate student exchanges between our two universities, participation by our students in the annual Asia Pacific Week event at ANU, and to be a partner in developing language curriculum deployment. We have also laid the groundwork for an annual faculty conference or workshop sponsored by Pan Asia that will alternate between IU and ANU. And our office has sponsored a number of visiting scholars and public events here at IU that relate to wider Asian affairs. The Institute continues to expand ways to develop understanding of Asia through this relationship with Australia National University and we hope to showcase those efforts on our webpage in the near future. In the meantime, we look forward to hearing from you if you have any interest in any of our programs.
