East Asian Studies @ U of T closing?

Buddhism in Canada Education Toronto Trends

A Strategic Planning Committee at the University of Toronto has recently proposed an amalgamation of the East Asian, Italian, German, Slavic, Spanish & Portuguese, and Comparative Literature Departments into a new “School of Languages and Literatures.” This would result in even less support for Buddhist studies at the university.

The East Asian Studies Students Union has launched a petition opposing the move, and has collected almost 2000 signatures. The petition is available on their Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2256991298

and at this link: http://www.petitiononline.com/saveeas/

More information and comment about the university’s proposal is available at this Toronto blog: http://torontoist.com/2010/07/university_of_toronto_languages_and_literatures.php
