About the Trinity Centre for Asian Studies
The Trinity Centre for Asian Studies acts as a focal point for Asian Studies at Trinity College Dublin, and brings together teaching and research in Chinese, Korean and Japanese Studies as well as other regionally-based scholarship and pan-Asian research. Our activities focus on contemporary society and culture, language learning, diaspora studies, and comparative studies including Asian-European studies. The centre’s aim is to promote Asian Studies nationally and internationally, and in so doing, to be the leading knowledge centre in Ireland for policy-makers, business leaders and scholars in the field. The centre organises regular seminars, public lectures and events.
The Trinity Centre for Asian Studies was formally launched on 7 October 2015 by the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Charlie Flanagan, T. D.
