Asian Studies Development Program, East-West Center
   The Asian Studies Development Program (ASDP) was launched in 1991 to enhance teaching about Asia at American two-year and four-year colleges and universities at the undergraduate level. In recent years, ASDP has also included Asian faculty in selected programs. Since its inception, more than 1,500 professors from the U.S. and Asia have participated in ASDP programs. A joint program of the East-West Center and the University of Hawaiʼi, ASDP offers a variety of content-focused faculty and institutional development programs and activities centered around summer residential institutes, field seminars in Asia, workshops on the U.S. mainland, and an annual academic conference.
   The East-West Center is an education and research organization established by the U.S. Congress in 1960 to strengthen relations and understanding among the peoples and nations of Asia, the Pacific, and the United States. The Center contributes to a peaceful, prosperous, and just Asia Pacific community by serving as a vigorous hub for cooperative research, education, and dialogue on critical issues of common concern to the Asia Pacific region and the United States. Funding for the Center comes from the U.S. government, with additional support provided by private agencies, individuals, foundations, corporations, and the governments of the region.

Society for East Asian Anthropology
   The Society for East Asian Anthropology (SEAA) is an officially recognized section within the American Anthropological Association (AAA), open to all members of the AAA, but its activities are intended to reach beyond the membership of the AAA. Any anthropologist anywhere in the world is welcome to join SEAA, to subscribe to our EASIANTH listserv, to post, and to participate. SEAA is committed to developing international channels of communication among anthropologists throughout the world. We hope to promote discussion and share information on diverse topics related to the anthropology of Taiwan; PRC; Hong Kong; Japan; Korea; other societies/cultures of Asia and the Pacific Basin with historical or contemporary ties to East Asia; transnational linkages among East Asian or between East Asian and other societies/cultures; and diasporic societies/cultures identified with East Asia.
