10 November: AMT Panel discussion | Looking back at the Leiden Asia Year, Studying in/at Leiden from an Asian Perspective
Now we are slowly moving into the last months of what is the Leiden Asia Year, it is about time we also listen to some of our very own Asian students and how they have experienced the year so far but also asking them what it feels like to be “Asian” in Leiden: What is it like working with collections from your home country whilst being abroad? How do you deal with sometimes whole different approaches to your own various cultural legacies or ways of studying their world? And how easy is it to have your own research interests speak back to somehow similar issues that your guest society is facing? Today we listen to some of the experiences of our Master and PhD students coming from different Asian societies to pursue their scholarly career in Leiden.
