Summer Institute on Infusing Asian Studies into the Undergraduate Curriculum: China and Japan
Location: East-West Center, Honolulu, Hawaii
Dates: July 23-August 10, 2012
This multidisciplinary, three-week Institute fosters faculty and institutional development aimed at enhancing undergraduate teaching and learning about Asian cultures and societies. The focus of the 2012 program will be China and Japan in their regional and global contexts. The first two weeks of the program will feature lectures and discussions on the cultures, philosophical and religious traditions, histories, and arts of China and Japan, while the third week will turn to social, economic and political dynamics from the early 20th century to the present, with attention to their socio-cultural ramifications.
This content-focused program is designed to assist both individual faculty members and institutional teams to develop concrete strategies for furthering the development of Asian Studies on their home campuses. Through a generous grant from the Freeman Foundation, participants will receive lodging in the East-West Center guesthouse and a modest stipend.
