Global East Asia: History & Culture Beyond Borders

2020 NCTA Baltimore Seminar



"Globalization" is one of the most prevalent terms in today's K-12 curriculum-but how often does that term privilege Western events and culture? This seminar aims to change that by looking at the "global" through an East Asian lens. Each lecture, given by a UMBC professor, will highlight the impact of global events on the region as well as the role of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean history and culture on the global stage. The lecturers will introduce a variety or written and visual source material, making the seminar perfect for K-12 history and social studies educators, art educators, librarians, and literature and world language teachers. No previous background in East Asia is presumed.

Seminars: Saturdays, 9:00am-3:30pm (UMBC Fine Arts N., Rm 533)

(Light breakfast and lunch will be provided, and parking is free!)
