USCPF AT THE ASSOCIATION FOR ASIAN STUDIES CONFERENCE

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
March 27-30, 2014

This year the U.S.-China Policy Foundation participated as exhibitors at the Association for Asian Studies (AAS) annual conference held March 27-30, 2014 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The Association for Asian Studies is a non-profit professional organization founded in 1941 and dedicated to facilitating the scholarly study and exchange of ideas in all disciplines as they relate to Asia. Their annual conference provides a platform for scholars to present papers, attend research, share viewpoints, and meet with colleagues in their field.

USCPF was one of the exhibitors in the heavily-trafficked AAS Conference exhibit hall. The hall was open for the duration of the conference, not only to conference attendees but also to the general public.

At the U.S.-China Policy Foundation booth we displayed various Foundation publications, including our Washington Journal of Modern China and the recently published book, The United States and China Since World War II, by USCPF president and co-chair Professor Chi Wang. We also streamed episodes from our weekly television program, China Forum, and handed out brochures about our Foundation, our recent events, and our various programs.

Participating in this conference gave the U.S.-China Policy Foundation an opportunity to share our organization’s mission statement with a broader audience, create new contacts for potential future collaborations, and maintain a current foothold in the wider Asian studies community. Events like these allow USCPF to continue our engagement with academia and bridge the gap between university organizations and the non-profit work we do.
