The Asian/Pacific Studies Institute (APSI) is the focal point of research and teaching on the Asia Pacific region at Duke University.
Since 1981, APSI has been supporting a dynamic group of faculty with a broad range of interdisciplinary expertise in the humanities, social sciences and medicine.
APSI fosters an active community of scholars of East and Southeast Asia, promotes the highest standards of undergraduate and graduate education in Asian Studies, enhances awareness of Asian cultures at Duke and across the Triangle, and provides academic and cultural resources about Asia to schools, colleges and universities in the southeastern United States.
The institute maintains a robust schedule of events on campus including an annual Speaker Series, international conferences, and forums for graduate students to share their work. APSI also regularly hosts visiting scholars from East Asia and maintains partnerships and exchange programs in the region. APSI's graduate students are an integral part of the intellectual and social fabric that forms our community.
