SNUAC Special Lecture Series by Foreign Professors (1)

Speaker: Prof. Martin Grossheim (Asian History)

The world is confronting uncertainty and transforming every aspect of our lives for which we are ill prepared. Economies, politics, culture, education, social and everyday life are being challenged while pointing us towards emerging and unknown futures. Leading this transformation is Asia with its resilience and dynamism, and ability to respond in a way that respects the past, sees the opportunities of the present, while having long-term visions. This is shifting the focus of global attention away from Europe and America in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries respectively. This monthly online seminar series proposes to look at the role of Asia, its past and present and vision of possible futures, in creating the twenty-first century.
