2019 Seminar Format & Content
This seminar will draw on a variety of formats (lecture, discussion, guest speakers, and visual materials among others) and address topics in East Asian history, language, education, ethics, science and technology, trade, art and media. We will make use of diverse resources (readings, films, cartoons, newspaper articles to name a few) in such a way as to allow participants to engage with issues and materials in a hands-on, collaborative learning environment. The sessions will be designed to contribute to the development of K-12 curriculum tools.

This seminar will examine the major trends, global issues, and historic foundations that shape East Asian society. Focusing on the regions that comprise present day China, Japan, and Korea, the course will emphasize print media, visual culture, and archival collections whenever germane.

The seminar will include an introduction to digital humanities scholarship and teaching in East Asia. Drawing on diverse resources (readings, films, cartoons, and newspaper articles), special collections at OSU Libraries, and the expertise of curators and scholars in Ohio, our course sessions will emphasize collaborative, hands‐on learning experiences, and the development of K‐12 curricular tools.

  • $200 worth of teaching materials, including a textbook and subscription to Education about Asia journal (one year)
