Best Lecture Series


CAPS is developing a Best Lecture Series website as a resource for those interested in East Asia. These talks are designed to be short introductions to subjects, but with enough detail to spark an interest in the viewer. We are recording talks by faculty, visiting scholars, and invited speakers. These talks, depending on the topic, level, and language, are intended for use in university and college classrooms, foreign language classes, K-12 classes and by the general public.

If you are interested in giving a Best Lecture talk, please email Holly Lakey at with your idea. We will book studio time and pay for recording, as well as provide the speaker with a small stipend. If you have a East Asia live event coming up and think it might fit as a Best Lecture event, let Holly know. And keep checking back at the Best Lecture website here for updates.
