Univ of Washington East Asia Resource Center summer institutes application deadline: 3/11/2018

Our National Consortium for Teaching about East Asia colleagues at the University of Washington have two summer institutes for you to consider:

Art and Politics:Episodes in East Asian History

An NCTA seminar for teachers of all grade levels

 

July 16 - 20, 2018
8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. (Mon-Thurs)
8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. (Fri)

Seminar leader: Melanie King, Art History faculty at Seattle Central College 

Art and Politics: Episodes in East Asian History will consider key moments in the history of East Asia as told through visual and literary responses by artists and writers of the time. Our approach will examine moments in the history of East Asia, beginning with a grounding in philosophical and religious traditions and their influence across space and time. Building on this foundation, we will examine representations and artistic responses to conflict, revolution, and war, which will lead us to a discussion of how we remember and memorialize the past. As we remember, whose stories are told? How do memorials help us remember or forget? Our study will also consider art movements and protests of change that are taking up issues with the government, international relations, the military, the environment, human rights, and a complex, interconnected history of East Asia.

Our course material will include primary and secondary source materials, art historical approaches, in addition to resources for inclusion in your classroom. No prior knowledge of the subject matter is required.

Please refer to the application for additional details and eligibility requirements.
