2012 Infusing Institute


Institute on Infusing East Asian Studies into the Undergraduate Curriculum

Dates: July 23-August 10, 2012
Location: East-West Center, Honolulu, Hawaii


This flagship ASDP program on Infusing Asian Studies into the Undergraduate Curriculum is designed to meet the needs of individual teachers and institutional teams from both two-year and four-year colleges and universities. The Institute takes a faculty-development approach to enhancing teaching and learning about Asian cultures and societies through lectures, discussions, films screenings and site visits in a seminar-like environment of shared inquiry. The 2012 Institute will focus on China and Japan. The first half of the program will feature presentations and discussions on Chinese and Japanese religious and philosophical traditions; art; literature; and historical dynamics through the beginning of 20th century. The program will then turn to the social, cultural, economic and political dynamics from the early 20th century to the present.
