  • The Asia-Pacific is home to about 60% of the world’s population and accounts for about 50% of the total global cancer incidence. Cancer has received increasing attention in the Asia-Pacific region as the region has experienced demographic changes which have led to a high prevalence of unhealthy risk factors. Health systems in Asia-Pacific countries may not be equipped to deal with the rapidly increasing burden of cancer. In this webinar, scholars from four member universities of the Association of Pacific Rim Universities (APRU) will present their latest research on cancer prevention and control. Register here.
  • Co-organized by The University of Chicago, CUHK, and The University of Hong Kong, this workshop aims to assess the extent to which layers of population movements and language contacts in East and Southeast Asia (ESEA) can account for the specificities of language evolution in the region. The co-hosts and speakers will discuss topics including language speciation and the emergence of new language varieties, language endangerment and loss, whether developments in ESEA are consistent with what has been observed in other parts of the world, and what are some specificities of ESEA that should be noted.
