Annual Presentation for Sixth Former’s Students on ASIA 16th November 2016
The Royal Society for Asian Affairs and the SOAS London would like to invite sixth form (IB1/2), students or equivalent to attend a day of talks about aspects of Asia on Wednesday 16th November.
The aim is to introduce students to subjects and concepts they may not have previously explored and which will, we hope, inspire them. The conference is open to all in the 16-19 age group. Those interested in pursuing geography, law, religion, international affairs, social sciences or Asian language pathways may find it particularly relevant.
The day is free and lunch is provided.
The provisional programme is:
The Ambassador of Uzbeckistan: “The Emergence of a new Country ”
Lois Pryce: “Motorbiking in Iran.”
David Mansfield: “Opium and Afghanistan – a state built on sand”
Raffaello Pantucci: “What is happening in the South China Seas?)
Sir Stewart Eldon: “Security, policy and transparency in the Middle East”
Students also have the opportunity to try an Asian language in an introductory class led by lecturers from SOAS. Although languages such as Arabic or Mandarin are perennially popular, students might also have the chance to try more unusual options such as Tibetan or Laos.
To attend you need to book a place through you school. For St. Clare’s students please contact Melanie Moorhouse in the careers office.
