The Department of Asian Studies is one of the leading Asian Studies programs in Canada, offering over 80 courses that cover Asian culture, thought, religion, and languages.
This brand-new course looks beyond the "traditional" thinking of European empires (Roman, Spanish and British). In the spirit of comparative analysis and interdisciplinary orientations we must think about Asian empires, particularly Qing, Mughal and Ottoman.
In light of the recent developments in Hong Kong, as well as the on-going challenges in addressing the past and present elsewhere in Asia, the Department of Asian Studies at the University of British Columbia is reaffirming its support of UBC’s commitment to advancing academic freedom.
We, here at the Department of Asian Studies, miss all of your lovely faces and thought that you, too, might be missing the beautiful scenery surrounding the Asian Centre - so, we created a few Virtual Zoom Backgrounds for you to use in any of your upcoming Zoom sessions!
