A regional conference of the Association of Asian Studies (AAS), MCAA has provided a forum for scholars and teachers of Asian Studies in the Midwest to gather and exchange knowledge about the history and cultures of Asia for over a half-century. The conference, last held at OSU in 1979, will feature nearly 50 panels and roundtables at which faculty and students present and discuss new research and pedagogical tools, as well as numerous special events, such as traditional Japanese performing arts, a Tibetan photography exhibit, a keynote address, and a K-12 educator workshop. Overall, faculty and students from over 60 Midwestern universities and colleges are participating this year. Participants from as far as Asia and Europe as well as other regions of North America will also travel to OSU to present their work.
Faculty, students, and members of the general public are welcome to attend the conference for the $30 day pass rate, which allows entrance to all conference sessions with the exception of the Saturday evening banquet.
