Research Problem Solving: Reframing Methodologies in an Age of Distance
What access difficulties does the pandemic present for fields dependent on site-based research (such as archeology, anthropology, art history, history, sociology, and more?) Are access difficulties specific to Asian studies that predated the pandemic being exacerbated by present conditions? What are strategies for redesigning or adapting research agendas in light of such considerations? How should this juncture prompt us to reconceive career markers and planning?
