​​​Overview​

Please join us for a book launch discussion and Q&A session for the publication of Asian Nationalisms Reconsidered (Routledge 2016). Edited by Jeff Kingston, Director of Asian Studies, Temple University Japan Campus. Nationalism appears to be a growing risk in a renascent 21st century Asia, stoking tensions, aspirations, and identity politics while amplifying grievances and raising questions about prospects in what is touted as the Asian century. This edited collection of 22 chapters provides a broad overview of nationalism in Asia, including country case studies and thematic analysis. Leading experts in their fields succinctly convey key insights and critical analysis useful to understanding the dynamics and variations of nationalism across the region.

We will have a conversation with several of the authors (see below) followed by a discussion with the audience. Robert Dujarric, ICAS Director, will moderate a discussion.
​- ​James Brown, Assistant Professor, Political Science, Temple University Japan Campus
​- ​Tina Burrett,  Associate Professor, Faculty of Liberal Arts, Sophia University and ICAS Adjunct Fellow
​- ​Sven Saaler, Associate Professor, Faculty of Liberal Arts, Sophia University
​- ​Lawrence Repeta, Professor, Faculty of Law, Meiji University
​- ​Matt Linley, Professor in the International Education and Exchange Center (IEEC) at Nagoya University and ICAS Adjunct Fellow
