The faculty and staff of the Center for Asian Studies offer our warmest congratulations to everyone in the graduating class of December 2012. To arrive at this occasion took hard work and dedication, and we’re certain that you will represent CU honorably as you move into the next phase.

We would particularly like to recognize three Asian Studies majors who are graduating this week. All three have completed senior theses this semester, capping off the education they have received in the people and cultures of Asia.

Jonathan Campbell’s thesis was entitled, “Swing for the Kaki: Major League Baseball in Japan,” and was advised by Professor Thomas Zeiler of History and International

Elizabeth Chavez’s thesis was on “Breaking Out of the Single Story: The Senkaku/Diaoyu Islands Dispute from a Transnational, Multilateral Perpective,” advised by Professor Miriam Kingsberg of History.

Rachel Young’s thesis was, “A Marketing Plan for Crest Oral Care Products in Rural Indian Markets,” advised by Professor Laura Brueck of Asian Languages and Civilizations.

These theses will be compiled and published as the second volume of our new Colorado Journal of Asian Studies in the spring, but in the meantime, please view the first volume here to see other theses done by recent Asian Studies majors.

Congratulations again!
