The creation and functioning of the EARL in the Newsletter of the International Institute for Asian Studies
"With technological advances, the idea how to make ‘smallness’ irrelevant seemed doable.

"The EARL is yet another embodiment of the conviction that Humanities and Social Sciences must go hand in hand to understand what is going on around us and how we got there."
