The 2011 Forum, June 22-24 at UC Berkeley, is co-sponsored by the Institute of East Asian Studies (UC Berkeley) and the Research Institute of Korean Studies (Korea University). In keeping with the mission of "Cross-Currents: East Asian History and Culture Review," the new IEAS-RIKS online and print journal, the Forum brings East Asia scholars from around the world together to explore the potential breadth and depth of “cross-currents” as a metaphor for the multi-directional flow of people, goods, and ideas across time and space in East Asia. The Forum is free and open to the public. For complete information, please visit http://cross-currents.berkeley.edu/forum-2011.
