The Dr. David Chu Program in Asia-Pacific Studies

The Dr. David Chu Program in Asia-Pacific Studies aims to foster and disseminate knowledge about the Asia-Pacific. Many of our activities promote specialized research and teaching about particular locations in the region; but our hallmark is that we provide an intellectual meeting ground for critical and self-reflexive conversations that cut across conventional academic disciplines and traditional area studies. Toward this end the program is especially interested in sponsoring activities that bring the Asia-Pacific into global conversations about the most pressing issues we face in the contemporary world, while at the same time reflecting on the significance of the past for us today. Our wide range of activities includes public academic events, teaching programs, scholarships, and more.

Almost all images used on the Dr. David Chu Program website were originally submissions to the Program’s annual photo contest.
