Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy and Asia Research Institute - Asian Urbanisms Cluster, National University of Singapore
March 28-30 University of Washington

This joint workshop of the Center for Asian Urbanism and the UW faculty cluster for Resilience in the Built Environment highlights the UW's capacities to apply cultural context-specific expertise to problems of urbanization across the Pacific. Preceding the 75th Anniversary conference of the Association for Asian Studies in Seattle (March 31-April 3), the UW Workshop on Resilience and Asian Urbanism gathers a unique group of leading scholar-professional-activists to inspire and facilitate creative long-term partnerships in both research and action. Cases and discussions of indigeneity and place-based resilience, water-sensitive urbanization, and new urban-rural relations will highlight the mutual relevance of expertise in global-area studies and the professional built-environmental disciplines; explore the potential for border-crossing applications of experience; and suggest new linkages within the university.
