Graduate Student Conference Held October 1-2, 2004

The Asian Studies Graduate Conference at the University of Texas at Austin gathered students working on original research projects across disciplines and across traditional academic divisions of Asia to present their work.

The conference provided graduate students with a dynamic forum in which to present their work and benefit from a scholarly exchange of ideas. The keynote speaker was Veena Das, the Krieger-Eisenhower Professor of Anthropology at John Hopkins University.


Graduate Students Receive Continuing Fellowships

The Department of Asian Studies is proud to announce that two doctoral candidates in Asian Cultures and Languages, Laura Brueck and Mark McClish, have both been awarded University Continuing Fellowships for 2004-2005.

This continues what is turning into a stellar record for the Department's graduate program: in the past four years six students have received these prestigious fellowships, including one, Chinese literature doctoral candidate Ma Yue, who received a University fellowship two years in a row--the first time in the program's history that has occurred. What is especially impressive considering the small size of the department's graduate population (generally around 40-50 students) is that since 2000 (with the exception of 2003-04), two of the three students nominated each year have received University fellowships. Department Chair Patrick Olivelle is not surprised at this external validation of what he considers "an extraordinary group of graduate students."
