Though East Asian Studies is not a new program, a recent grant from the Freeman Foundation has enabled the program to hire a tenure-track faculty member, to update library holdings, to recruit students abroad, and to fund faculty and student research and travel. The program faculty expect to be introducing some new courses, especially in the area of literature and translation, and to build the language component so that advanced Chinese and Japanese will be offered eventually. Dr. Alister Inglis, the most recent hire in East Asian Studies, is a specialist in Chinese language and literature and will play a central role in the long-term development and growth of the program.
