International Seminar Series: East Asian Agenda for the Next U.S. President
T.Y. Wang, Professor of Politics and Government at Illinois State University, will present “East Asian Agenda for the Next US President”
This talk aims to identify a series of challenges that the next U.S. president–whether a Republican or Democrat–will face in East Asia. It will also discuss how the candidates of the two major political parties may differ in their approaches to East Asia.
T.Y. Wang (email@example.com) is Professor of Political Science at Illinois State University (ISU), and currently serves as the co-editor of the Journal of Asian and African Studies. He was the Coordinator of the Conference Group of Taiwan Studies (CGOTS) of the American Political Science Association. His current research focuses on national identity, East Asian politics, electoral behavior, US policy towards China and Taiwan, and research methodology. He has authored, co-authored, or edited 7 books/special issues and published more than 40 articles/book chapters in such scholarly journals as the American Political Science Review, Asian Survey, International Studies Quarterly, Issues and Studies, Journal of Peace Research, Political Research Quarterly, and Social Science Quarterly. He also presented 70 conferences papers. His most recent book (co-edited with Christopher H. Achen) is The Taiwan Voter (Ann Arbor: University of Michigan Press, forthcoming).
In accordance with the International Strategic Plan, Illinois State University is in the process of developing campus-wide global learning goals. This is an exciting time of growth and change for the ISU community. Comprehensive campus internationalization, as it is called, goes far beyond study-abroad trips and international student recruitment. It includes the expansion of internationally-oriented courses, clubs, dining, housing, civic engagement and other activities at our home campus and affiliated locations. This past Spring, the Office of International Studies and Programs (OISP) dedicated its International Studies Seminar Series to the topics of Global Learning with a focus on Global Engagement. This Fall, we will examine The U.S. Presidential Election, its Global Implications, and its Comparative Perspectives. The International Studies Seminar Series will be held on Wednesdays from 12:00-1:00pm in the Bone Student Center at 100 N. University St., Normal, IL 61761, starting August 31st and ending on November 16th. Students, staff, faculty, and community members are all encouraged to attend. For more information, please contact Dr. Maria Schmeeckle at firstname.lastname@example.org or (309) 438-2932.
This is part of the continuing International Studies Seminar Series sponsored by the Office of International Studies and Programs. Small snacks will be served.
