The Harvard University Asia Center, which celebrated its official opening in March 1998, will commemorate its 10th anniversary May 1-2. Over the past decade, the center has responded to and grown with the dynamic changes that have occurred throughout Asia. Among its programs and activities, the center has sponsored conferences in the United States and Asia, organized timely seminars, hosted distinguished visitors and speakers, and developed cooperative programs with other institutions.
“A Decade of Asia and the Asia Center” will feature a welcome by Harvard President Drew Faust and a series of Asia-related panels and lectures open to the public. Additionally, the center is sponsoring a weeklong series of films from East, South, and Southeast Asia, and an exhibit of Asia Center publications and posters from past events will be on display in the Center for Government and International Studies (CGIS), south building.
