About the Theme of “Constructing Asian Identity”

For around 30 years since the end of the Cold War, the attention to Asia’s role in globalization has never waned. Facing new challenges and potential turbulence in the development of globalization in 2016, people are asking: how Asia will respond, as both a giant economic powerhouse and an evolving civilizational entity, and how Asia defines itself in this context. A need emerges to review Asia’s progress in science, technology, environment and sustainable development and to reflect Asia’s psyche, ideological transformation and historical implications. Collecting insights from Singapore-based graduates in humanities and social sciences as well as graduates from regional countries, the HSS-Graduate Student Committee is honored to hold the Nanyang Graduate Student Colloquium for the third time with the theme of “Constructing Asian Identity”.

Event Highlights:

  • Join graduate students and faculty across different disciplines and universities in Asia
  • Share your research and gain more insights from cross-disciplinary perspectives

  • Build your academic network
  • Win “Best Presentation Award”: 5 awards worth S$200 each and opportunity to publish with Asian Journal of Public Affairs
