Oscar Lee Symposium

Oscar Lee Symposium of Undergraduate East Asian Studies

Friday,  30 April 2010

This half-day conference, organized by the Columbia Undergraduate East Asian Studies Initiative (EASI), gathered diverse Columbia student groups, academic departments, and institutes into a collaborative and multi-disciplinary effort toward furthering the undergraduate interdisciplinary study of East Asia.  Eight paper writers presented their research findings and received constructive criticism during three panel sessions.  One relevant paper was “Changes in Chinese Consumer Behavior: Repercussions of Sino-Japanese Political Conflict and Negative Country Image and Japanese Business Response.” 

This conference was co-sponsored by WEAI, the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures, and the Columbia College Student Council.  ASC support for the EASI also contributed to publication of the Columbia East Asian Review, an annual, online, peer-review academic journal dedicated to furthering knowledge of East Asia through the promotion of research and interdisciplinary dialogue.
