Dateline North Korea: Dispatches from a Pyongyang Watcher
East-West Center Art Gallery (Burns Hall)
July 12, 2005
Time: 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.
Cost: $15.00
RSVP by Friday, July 8, 2005 (No shows will be billed).

Bradley Martin, journalist and author of the book, Under the Loving Care of the Fatherly Leader: North Korea and the Kim Dynasty, will share his observations about the world’s most secretive country based on more than a quarter century of reporting from Asia.

New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof called Under the Loving Care of the Fatherly Leader, “the best book ever written about North Korea.” Since 1979, Martin has made four reporting trips to North Korea, providing him access few American journalists can match. The book, which he began writing while a journalist-in-residence at the East-West Center in 1991-92, includes on-the-scene reporting from his visits, interviews with North Korean defectors and analysis of North Korean propaganda.

Martin has covered Korea and other parts of Asia as bureau chief for Newsweek, The Asian Wall Street Journal, the Baltimore Sun, Asia Times (for which he wrote a column called “Pyongyang Watch”) and Asian Financial Intelligence. Martin holds the Manship Chair in Journalism at Louisiana State University.

For 3rd-12th grade classroom teachers in the U.S. and Asia Pacific region.
East-West Center
July 23 - August 6, 2005
Teaching for meaning and relevance is at the heart of this institute hosted at the East-West Center in Honolulu.

NEH Workshop -- Remembering Pearl Harbor: History, Memory, and Memorial
Open to U.S. high school social studies/history and language arts teachers.
East-West Center and U.S.S. Arizona Memorial
August 7 - 12, 2005
As a place and an event of singular significance, Pearl Harbor has become an iconic symbol in American popular memory and an enduring part of our nation’s consciousness. This workshop, hosted at the East-West Center and the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial (the national historic site commemorating the Pearl Harbor attack), explores the “living history” of Pearl Harbor/Hawaii within the context of U.S. foreign policy–and more specifically U.S.-Japan relations–and helps make connections between the methods of public history and classroom applications. Participants use historic site visits, presentation content, primary source materials, including personal narratives, veteran survivor stories, and newspaper accounts from U.S., Japanese, and Hawaiian perspectives to devise standards-aligned lessons and “curricular roadmaps” aimed at developing critical thinking skills.

‘Hope for Renewal: Photographs From Indonesia After the Tsunami’
EWC Exhibition Focuses on Tsunami Devastation and Rebuilding Efforts
June 17 — August 9, 2005

Exhibition of photographs taken in Aceh, Indonesia, in the weeks following the devastating earthquake and tsunami that leveled coastal communities and claimed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in the Indian Ocean region a half year ago.

An opening reception for the photo exhibit is scheduled for Sunday, June 26–exactly six months after a massive undersea earthquake struck the Indonesian island of Sumatra and set in motion one of the most catastrophic natural disasters ever to hit the Asia Pacific region.

Titled Hope for Renewal: Photographs From Indonesia After the Tsunami, the exhibit features images captured by local photographer Marco Garcia, who traveled to Sumatra in January and returned there in May to document the progress of rebuilding efforts. Garcia’s photos chronicle important stages in the aftermath of the disaster, from rescue and recovery to the rebuilding of communities that continues today. The exhibit emphasizes the indomitable spirit of survivors and rescuers–and the hope for renewal in the face of unimaginable adversity.

The East-West Center will host a series of public events to provide updates on reconstruction efforts in the affected countries. Presentations and discussions will address the far-reaching effects of the disaster in areas such as public health, education, and economic development:

Wednesday, July 6 — (noon in the East-West Center Gallery) EWC Senior Fellow Sumner La Croix will lead a panel discussion on the economic impact of the disaster. The discussion is part of the Economic Study Area’s “Summer Wednesdays” workshop series.

Sunday, July 10 — (2 p.m. in the East-West Center Gallery) Dr. Vernon Ansdell (Kaiser Permanente) and Dr. Kathleen Kozak (Straub Clinic and Hospital) will discuss their January 2005 visit to Indonesia as part of the Aloha Medical Mission.

Monday, August 1 — (noon in the East-West Center Gallery) EWC Education Program Associate Director Namji Steinemann will lead a discussion on the AsiaPacificEd Program’s Schools Helping Schools initiative.
