The statement addresses aspects of the recent conversation here about state standards, teaching/learning objectives, and the present state of the field. For those of you lobbying colleagues or instituions to enagage in more globally-oriented inquiry, the WHA now has brief, pithy text you can use.
Earlier this year, the Association for Asian Studies began the search for a new Journal of Asian Studies editor, as current editor Jeff Wasserstrom’s second five-year term will conclude in June 2018. The search committee interviewed several applicants and from the finalists selected Vinayak Chaturvedi, associate professor of South Asian history at the University of California, Irvine. Dr. Chaturvedi earned his Ph.D. at the University of Cambridge in 2001.
