-Next Generation Global Workshop

The Next Generation Global Workshop brings together with next-generation researchers (including graduate students and postdoctoral fellows) and academic staff members from our international partner universities. It is an opportunity for participants to present their own research findings to an audience of graduate students and early career researchers from around the world, and to receive feedback from leading international scholars. These experiences contribute greatly to participants’ growth as researchers. They gain experience not only in presenting at an international forum, but also in activities such as chairing sessions and event management. They build their capacity to produce written academic outputs, and have the opportunity to prepare their manuscripts for publication in scholarly journals. The Workshop was launched in 2008 under the theme of “Connecting with Classmates across Borders”, and has been held on an annual basis by the Global Center of Excellence (GCOE) for Reconstruction of the Intimate and Public Spheres in 21st Century Asia. In 2013, KUASU took over responsibility for continuing the Workshop series.

-East Asia Workshop

This is a student-oriented event designed mainly for undergraduate students to present their research in English. To date the Workshop has been operated jointly by the National Taiwan University, Seoul National University and Kyoto University, with the National Taiwan and Kyoto Universities hosting the event alternately. Before the Workshop itself, students attend lectures by faculty members from the participating universities, and pursue fieldwork activities. We are looking forward to welcoming new participants from universities in Southeast Asia in the 2013 academic year and beyond.
