National identity studies have advanced in the study of various Asian states and with diverse approaches. This panel will compare the approaches to five countries and assess differences in perspective. Each of the participants is known for a distinct approach, drawing on sources such as media analysis, public opinion surveys, and multi-dimensional academic writings. For purposes of this project, Russian identity will be primarily Russia’s place in Asia. Explicit comparisons will be made between Chinese and Japanese identities with conclusions drawn about their tense relations of late. Findings on Indian national identity will be drawn from the project at George Washington University on identities in Asia.
