JOINT CONFERENCE

The Joint Conference brings together the Southern California region’s LIASE grantees (Occidental College, Whittier College, and The Claremont Colleges), and serves as a capstone to each year’s slate of research, curriculum, and program activities. The Joint Conference provides students and faculty from all seven institutions a unique opportunity to share findings and discuss ideas with a group of participants immersed in this unique field of study. The Pacific Basin Institute at Pomona College is a key partner in this conference.

On March 4, 2016, the first Joint Conference of regional LIASE grantees came together under the theme: “Globalization & Sovereignty: Examining Environmental Issues in Asia.” The conference featured faculty and student presentations and a roundtable discussion on current environmental issues in Asia.
