    This roundtable aims to exchange ideas about the sources and possible significance of generational differences in contemporary Asia. We hope to discuss the question of how recent trends in social media, popular culture, education, demography, labor markets, etc., have led to differences in identity and outlook between young people and their parents in various Asian countries, and what the future impact of such generational differences may be. Are the younger generations of different Asian countries being drawn closer together by shared technology and popular culture, or are they being pushed further apart by growing nationalism, for example? 

    Harvard-Yenching Institute Annual Forum, co-sponsored with the Asia Center, Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies, the Korea Institute and the Reischauer Institute of Japanese Studies
