Asia Forum


The Asia Forum is the primary venue for interdisciplinary discourse on matters related to Asia Pacific studies at the United States Naval Academy. It functions as the link among the Naval Academy's vibrant group of faculty members in various departments with Asia Pacific teaching and research portfolios. But more importantly, it is also a marketplace of ideas for scholars and Midshipmen. For these purposes, through its frequently held lecture series and other forms of events such as film series, The Asia Forum hosts nationally and internationally renowned scholars to provide cutting edge research and insights on matters vital to the interest of the Brigade of Midshipmen and the USNA community.
