Graduate School of East Asia Studies (GEAS), Freie Universität Berlin, invites to the GEAS Winter Digital Lecture Series Winter 20/21: East Asian Responses To Crisis.

The Covid-19 pandemic has called for new responses to crisis worldwide. How have governments and people of East Asian countries coped with the current and previous crises, and what strategies have they developed? In this GEAS Lecture Series, scholars from GEAS and FUB colleagues discuss responses to the current Covid-19 pandemic by East Asian governments and people, including people from East Asia in Berlin. The last lecture in the series reflects dealing with disasters, on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the 3.11 triple disaster in Japan.


The lectures will take place exclusively online. Please find below the registration information as well as the links for participation on each event website.
