Center for Transpacific Studies

The Center for Transpacific Studies (CTS) at USC Dornsife supports scholars who study the United States’ relationship with Asia, transpacific movements, and Asian-American populations. By focusing on research in two distinct clusters – social and cultural research and political economy trends across the Pacific – CTS supports the study of the Pacific Rim in its entirety, including the region’s impact on the United States and vice versa.
