East Asia Observatory

Impact of Agriculture

While Humanities scholars in Asia are taking on a variety of environmental concerns, the East Asia Observatory is focusing on the impact of agriculture with respect to environmental and climate problems, and examining agricultural and food ethics from East Asian perspectives.

Our mission

The East Asia Observatory at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Humanities and Social Sciences, at National Taiwan University (EAO, NTU), strives to enlist scholars in the Humanities and related disciplines from East Asia– and around the globe– to join the fray in confronting the environmental and climate problems of the new century. To connect our land-based concerns with parallels issues of the sea and marine life, we are building bridges with the Humanities and related scholars at the University of Guam for whom the health of the seas and the resilience of the stocks is of vital concern.
