The goal of this Thursday Forum presentation is to discuss the outcomes of the summer 2018 ASIANetwork Faculty Enhancement Program (ANFEP). Funded by the Mellon Foundation through the ASIANetwork organization, the 2018 seminar was devoted to the topic of “Religion in National and International Affairs in China and India.” The seminar is part of the ASIANetwork Faculty Enhancement Program (ANFEP), which seeks to deepen Asian Studies in the Liberal Arts. The seminar itinerary included travel to the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and other colleges in Shenzen and Guangzhou, China; Kolkata, India and northeast India, including Darjeeling and Sikkim. ASIANetwork encourages the study of Asian countries and cultures and enables students and faculty to experience these cultures first hand. This presentation is a “gateway” for those interested in expanding their knowledge about this region. Potential collaborators within the region represented multiple disciplines in addition to Religion, including Information Technology, Agriculture, Social Justice and Anthropology, to name a few. The 2018 ANFEP participants, sought to create new research and to facilitate conversations among faculty and administrators within these and other disciplines This session is highly interactive with discussion about the potential to collaborate with other professors and universities located in China and India for joint teaching and research opportunities. The purpose of this presentation is to discuss how the outcomes of the ANFEP Program may be applicable to CSB/SJU.
