The problem with globalization is that it happens in some places faster than others. Asia, with its blossoming economies, is changing rapidly—and not just economically. There's demand for Western amenities and attitudes, and serious public debates on what this all means.
Few such discussions are taking place in Boise, which has a lot to gain by exposing itself to an international climate. But the conversation is beginning in some places, one of which is Boise State University, which is hosting Asia Fest at 6 p.m. at the Boise State University Student Union Jordan Ballroom.
There, you'll join the Vietnamese Student Association and the Japan Club for an internationally themed dinner, student and guest performances, and a silent auction.
Admission is free-$6.
