- Easten Law's teaching and research interests focus on intercultural communication, inter-religious dialogue, and community organizing. He is currently studying how the spiritual streams of Christian, Buddhist, and Confucian traditions interact in forming China’s emerging views on charity, civil society, and human rights. Trained in ethnography, participatory action research, and asset-based community development, Easten is also active in working with local DC faith communities and non-profit groups to address issues of structural injustice along racial and social-economic lines. He has worked in China for several years in a variety of capacities including teaching communication and culture at Anhui Normal University. He has also provided trainings and lectures in cross-cultural dynamics for several organizations such as the US State Department, Mercy Corps, and local Chinese non-profits responding to the earthquake which struck Southwest China in 2008.
