May 30-31, 2014: Half the World 2014: Fifth Biannual Symposium on Asian Environmental Issues
Hobart and William Smith Colleges hosted the biannual Half the World Symposium on Asian Environments May 30-31, 2014 in Geneva, New York. The symposium is part of our ongoing Asian Environmental Studies initiative, funded generously by a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation. We have been thrilled with the success of past symposia in fostering conversations at the intersection of Asian Studies and Environmental Studies.
August 19-21, 2013: Asian Environmental Studies Curriculum Development Workshop
The aim of this workshop was to foster dialog among Asianists and non-Asianists in environment and sustainability fields about teaching and scholarship on human-environment topics in East Asian contexts. Through this workshop and other events such as the biannual (even years) Half the World Symposium at the Colleges, we hope to help build curriculum, community, and capacity around the theme of Asian Environmental Studies, starting from the foundations of rich and long-standing strengths in interdisciplinary Asian Studies and Environmental Studies programs on liberal arts campuses.
