Welcome to the East Asian Student Times (EAST) Magazine online accompaniment to our print edition! EAST curates a host of Asia-specific articles created for and by students at the University of Leeds.
Our mission is to provide an enthralling and engrossing platform through which student chronicles and viewpoints and can be featured prominently alongside the work of eminent professionals and lecturers in the various spheres of the Far and South East Asian world.
Our international readership includes Snow Flower and the Secret Fan author Lisa See, The Joy Luck Club author Amy Tan, publishers Penguin Books China, plus of course our numerous students both past and present of Leeds East Asian Studies.
From cultural nuggets and first-hand accounts of Asian adventures through to lifestyle, food, plus the arts and politics from China, Thailand, Japan and beyond, we strive to capture how life and events in East Asia affect you.
