Created in 2004, the center is housed in the Department of Asian Studies, and features a diverse faculty from fields such as anthropology, history, literature, language pedagogy, and political science. Focusing primarily on contemporary East Asian cultures, societies, and languages, Center scholars have conducted research on issues relating to classical and modern literature, consumerism, demography, film, gender, language instruction, poetry, popular culture, religion and ritual, social movements, and transnational migration.

The primary mission of the Center is to promote research related to East Asian cultures and societies, to enrich the learning experiences of undergraduate and graduate students interested in the region, and to encourage interdisciplinary collaboration on East Asia throughout the University of Texas at Austin campus.
