This faculty development workshop will explore how the meaning of “being Japanese” has changed over time, with a particular emphasis on the uses of history, literature and visual culture in shaping and representing a distinctively “Japanese” culture.
Designed to meet the needs of college and university educators committed to enhancing teaching about Japanese culture and society in their undergraduate courses, Being Japanese: Histories, Identities and Modernities is being organized by the Asian Studies Development Program (ASDP)—a joint project of the East-West Center and the University of Hawai'i—in collaboration with Central Washington University. Through a grant from the Japan Foundation, participants will receive awards of $300.
Directed by Peter Nosco (University of British Columbia), the workshop will be conducted as a seminar combining content-focused lectures with group discussions. It will culminate with a session exploring strategies for infusing workshop content into undergraduate humanities and social science curricula.
