Live at the Association for Asian Studies

This week, Sinica presents a special live recording from the annual meeting of the Association for Asian Studies (AAS) which convened in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Regular listeners, please note that the audio quality here isn’t up to our usual standards: we didn’t have professional audio equipment on hand during the meeting, but tried our best given the opportunity to trap both Jeffrey Wasserstrom and Pankaj Mishra in live conversation. As Sinica regulars may know, Jeffrey Wasserstrom is a Professor of History at UC Irvine and publisher of The Journal of Asian Studies, while Pankaj Mishra is author of From the Ruins of Empire and Temptations of the West.
