Local Experiences / Global Reverberations”
The 2016 ASIANetwork Conference theme focuses on the global ecological consciousness that underlies much of 21st century scholarship, teaching and learning throughout the arts, humanities, social, behavioral and physical sciences. Asia’s environment includes physical and natural systems, social and cultural contexts, as well as the metaphysical and virtual worlds.
In our environment-focused theme we are sensitive to values embedded in issues such as sustainability, collaboration, diversity, justice, and global citizenship. Ecological consciousness in the study of Asia recognizes multiple perspectives and “truths” that arise from non-Western- and Western-framed inquiry and disciplines.
