Bridging Asia Graduate and Faculty Workshop: "After the US Presidential election: American Grand Strategy and East Asia in 2021"

Friday, January 21 at 9:00am to 5:00pm

This is a past event.

Davidson Conference Center, Vineyard Room
3409 S. Figueroa Street Los Angeles, CA 90089

Sponsored by the Korea Foundation. Co-sponsored by the USC Korean Studies Institute and the USC Center for International Studies.

How will US grand strategy to East Asia evolve following the 2020 presidential election? Is confrontation and a new Cold War inevitable? The Washington policy establishment appears to have rapidly arrived at a new consensus that China is a threat and needs to be contained. 

The USC Korean Studies Institute’s “US-Asia Grand Strategy program”, in conjunction with the USC Center for International Studie, are organizing a one-day workshop that will explore these issues. Emphasizing mentoring the next generation of scholars of American grand strategy and East Asia, this conference is intended to link KSI US-Asia grand strategy predoctoral fellows with young and senior scholars around the country to address key issues in America’s relationship with Asia. The conference will be a mix of feedback on scholarly papers as well as sessions specifically dedicated to mentoring young scholars about learning both policy and scholarly relevance.

Format: There will be no paper presentations, but we will begin with discussants. The expectation is that participants will have read all the papers before the workshop, which will get shared a few weeks prior to the event.

This workshop is by invitation only for graduate students and faculty.

Sponsored by the Korea Foundation.
