On the occasion of her retirement in June 2015, Young-Key Kim-Renaud, professor emerita, and her husband, Dr. Bertrand Renaud, made a gift of $50,000 to the Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures. Their gift enabled the continuation of the East Asian Humanities Lecture Series, originally funded by the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences Dean’s Office.
The lecture series aims to bring specialists in East Asian humanities and cultures to GW to encourage cross-disciplinary discussions. The series was renamed the Kim-Renaud East Asian Humanities Lecture Series in 2016. We are delighted that we can continue the lecture series thanks to Professor Kim-Renaud and Dr. Renaud's generosity.
