York Centre for Asian Research (YCAR) Third International Graduate Student Conference
Glendon Campus, Toronto, Canada
The concept of “Asia” implies a fixed geographical, demographic, economic, political, and cultural region. However, viewed from multiple perspectives, its “essence” becomes indeterminate and boundaries fuzzy. From colonization to decolonization, from military invasion to cultural inter-penetration, from international power struggle to regional association, Asia and Asian Diasporas are affected by and affecting globalization in various ways.
