Funded and sponsored by the East-West Center and the University of Hawai’i at Manoa, the Asian Studies Development Program (ASDP) National Conference is an annual event that provides an opportunity for ASDP alumni and other interested college and university faculty members to share research related to Asian cultures and societies. It also promotes sharing of strategies for effectively infusing Asian content into undergraduate humanities and social science curricula.
