Transpacifica is primarily written by Graham Webster (@gwbstr), a fellow researching U.S.–China Relations at the Yale Law School China Center. Here, since 2006, I write about East Asian politics mostly in China and Japan, the Internet and society, the environment, and contemporary art. Unavoidably, I sometimes veer off topic—even with a topic as large as the Pacific.
I speak only for myself and do not represent any of these things I'm affiliated with:
• Fellow on U.S.–China Relations, The China Center, Yale Law School
• Adjunct Instructor, Center for Global Affairs, New York University
• Contributor, 八八吧 :: 88 Bar
- Pictures of Obama, Xi, Abe, and others hobnobbing in The Hague
- What did Baucus really say he’s ‘very wary’ of in US-China ties?
- Asia in Obama’s 2014 State of the Union: We’re Still Number One
- Statements in the evolving US rhetoric on the Chinese ADIZ
- Key documents on Biden’s trip to Asia (in progress)
