As the world has become more interconnected, modern governments have recognized the need for soft power and the value of cultural diplomacy. For these reasons, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan have established active cultural diplomacy programs to enhance the study of Asia in other countries.  China now provides significant support for Chinese language and cultural studies overseas.  This talk, from an American perspective, will evaluate China’s soft power push and compare the practice of cultural diplomacy in East Asia and the United States.
