Please join us for a festive launch of the Digital Asia Hub, which will take place in Hong Kong [more details will be shared with you once you RSVP] from 5:30-7:30pm on the evening of Thursday, November 26th.
The Digital Asia Hub is an independent Internet and society research hub in the form of a non-profit think tank based in Hong Kong. Incubated by the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University and a diverse group of academic, civil society, and private sector partners, the Hub will provide a non-partisan, open, and collaborative platform for research, knowledge sharing, and capacity building related to Internet and society issues with a focus on digital Asia. The Hub also aims to strengthen effective multi-stakeholder discourse, with both local and regional activities, and will contribute to – and itself serve as a node of – a larger network of academic organizations: the Global Network of Internet & Society Centers.
The longer-term goal of the Digital Asia Hub is to develop a robust community that shares a deep interest in and commitment to Internet and society research. It will facilitate local and regional approaches to shaping and embracing emerging opportunities in digital Asia, and will initiate and support cross-cultural, sectoral, and disciplinary dialogues and collaborations.
At the launch, there will be brief remarks and a celebration of the publication of the essay collection written by students and collaborators on “The Good Life in Asia’s Digital 21st Century.” We will also announce winners of the student writing competition.
The event will be informal and include a small group of colleagues and collaborators. Your presence would be most welcome.
If you plan to attend, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 19th.
We look forward to seeing you for this special occasion.
