The current globalization is characterized by the speeding up and intensification of the flow of exchanges between different areas of the world.

East Asia’s presence is increasingly closer and evident in the global context. However, far from deepening mutual understanding, the dominant imaginary still emphasizes distance and remoteness.

The processes and dynamics of exchange that developed from the encounter between people and social groups with their own cultural peculiarities need to be recognized in order to overcome the barriers and hierarchies that separate us.

The aim of this website is to bring to light the cultural diversity present in East Asia, as well as the bidirectional cultural transfers between East Asia and the rest of the world.
