Speaker Support

Programming Note

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and in accordance with the University Visitors Policy, the Liu Institute is unable to support external speakers visiting campus in spring 2021. We can, however, support external speakers for online events. To discuss a virtual event for spring 2021, please contact the Institute directly at asia@nd.edu. All questions regarding this and other COVID-19 related policies should be directed to https://here.nd.edu/.

Speaker Support 

Faculty Fellows interested in bringing a speaker to campus are asked to complete the speaker nomination form for consideration. 

Faculty are highly encouraged to seek supplementary support from their home departments and other units on campus in conjunction with funding requests made to the Institute. The proposed speaker’s expertise must be related to Asia and aligned with the Institute’s mission. 

Requests should be submitted 6-12 months in advance of the desired campus visit. Speaker requests will be reviewed by the Director and Institute Manager. Support will be awarded based on relevance to the mission of the Institute, budgetary appropriateness and with consideration to the overall event schedule. 

Speaker Series 

Faculty Fellows are encouraged to collaborate and propose a thematic speaker series over the course of an academic year. Past examples include:

2018-2019 series on Legitimacy and Propaganda in Contemporary Asia 

2019-2020 series on China and Africa

Please direct any questions you may have to Christine Cox at ccox10@nd.edu or 574-631-2673.
