    Dr. Robert Samuel Ramsey: “The languages of East Asia: what does it mean to be East Asian?”

    Tuesday, November 18, 2014
    3:00pm--4:30pm
    Multipurpose Room, The Language House, St. Mary’s Hall
    [PDF flyer]

    For scholars of East Asia, the term describes more than a geographical area. Rather, “East Asia” is the shorthand phrase used to discuss one the world’s great civilizations. In a word, it is primarily a cultural term, not a geographical one, and in that sense East Asian Studies is not area studies at all. It comprises the history and deeper significance of human culture and institutions. 
                       
    And yet, geography, the lay of the land, is nevertheless an important topic for the East Asianist, because it has shaped the languages and cultures of East Asia to a remarkable degree.  The talk will explore geography’s influence on the language and culture of today’s East Asia. 

    Dr. Ramsey will be introduced by Dr. Seung-Kyung Kim, Professor and Chair, Women’s Studies Department & Director, Center for East Asian Studies.
    This event is FREE and open to the public. If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Cara Snyder at csnyder3@umd.edu
