During the event, the PhD students presented their research projects, which revolved around a common geographical focus: Asia, and more specifically China, Korea, and Japan. The research interests were varied and covered different fields of studies: from language learning and pragmatics, to literature, visual art, manga studies, performance studies, social studies and so on.

The presentations were welcomed by a very attentive and participative audience, whose questions and comments were particularly insightful.
