Infusing Korean Studies into the Undergraduate Curriculum was a two-week faculty- and curriculum-development summer institute that will help develop and enhance undergraduate Korean studies in American colleges and universities. The program of lectures, group discussions, film screenings and individual team meetings will equip participating faculty teams to develop curriculum materials and strategic plans for expanding undergraduate Korean studies offerings on their campuses through a rich, multidisciplinary exploration of Korean history, literature, visual and performing arts, religion, politics and contemporary social dynamics. EWC alum and past president of the East-West Center’s Alumni Association Executive Board, Edward (Ned) Shultz (Open Grants, MA 1969-1971), was a special advisor to the program.

The Infusing Institutes are unique in bringing 2- to 4-person teams, including both teaching faculty and administrators, to develop curricular and institutional development plans. This team-based approach has been remarkably effective in fostering the growth of Asian studies programs.

The Institute was co-directed by Dr. Peter Hershock (EWC) and Dr. Cheehyung Harrison Kim (UH, History). Hosted with support from the Academy for Korean Studies, the 2019 institute is designed to meet the needs of educators committed to developing new Korea-focused courses and course modules, and to building Korean studies programs on their home campuses.

Sessions were closed to the public.
