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 2011 program will be China and Korea in their regional and global contexts. The first two weeks of the program will feature lectures and discussions on the culture, religious traditions, histories and arts of China and Korea, while the third week will focus on a range of contemporary issues. Throughout, an emphasis will be placed on understanding the shared heritages of Chinese and Korean cultures and societies, but also the distinctiveness of their contributions to the dynamics of East Asian and the global history.
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.
