Congratulations to Dr. Hiroki Takeuchi and Hamilton Scholar Keely McNeme on being formally accepted for publication in the Journal of East Asian Studies!

This is the second paper Dr. Takeuchi has co-authored with a Hamilton Scholar that will be published in a highly-ranked peer-reviewed journal.

Titled, “The Domestic Political Economy of Japan’s New Geoeconomic Strategy,” Takeuchi and McNeme’s paper tackles questions related to Japan’s developing role in international trade, domestic politics, and economics.

Congratulations again to Dr. Hiroki Takeuchi and Keely McNeme!

In 1917, Elmer Scott founded The Civic Federation of Dallas as a community-wide social service agency. Under Mr. Scott’s leadership, the Federation presented lectures, socials, dramas, and musical evenings. When the Federation was dissolved in 1958, the board of directors assigned its assets to SMU and asked that the annual income be used for the Scott-Hawkins Lectures.

We are proud the share a piece of SMU history and encourage you to continue the spirit of this tradition. Faculty and staff are invited to submit proposals for speakers or events that can appeal to a broad interdisciplinary audience.
