This one-day interdisciplinary symposium explores how the language systems, literature and art forms of East Asia (China, Japan, Korea, and Vietnam, among others) reflect multiple and intertwined paths of cultural flow. 

Invited specialists from a range of humanities fields will present on how ideas and inspirations from East Asia traveled across and beyond spatial, linguistic, and national borders to flourish in new dynamic forms of multiculturalism.
