Trinity Centre for Asian Studies


"To advance knowledge of Asia through interdisciplinary teaching, research and engagement"

The Trinity Centre for Asian Studies (TCAS) acts as a focal point for Asian Studies in the university, 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 and public lectures. TCAS academic staff provide postgraduate supervision in a range of subject areas as well as a two-year taught Master’s degree in Chinese Studies.

The Trinity Centre for Asian Studies (TCAS) is located in the School of Linguistic, Speech and Communication Sciences
