Infusing Korean Studies into the Undergraduate Curriculum is a multidisciplinary, two-week faculty development program offering undergraduate educators opportunities to interact with leading Korean studies experts in an intensive program of lectures, discussions, film screenings, and cultural events.
The program–to be held July 30 to August 10, 2018, at the East-West Center in Honolulu–is designed to assist institutional teams and individual faculty members develop course curricula and strategies for Asian studies program development.
The first week of the program will include sessions on premodern Korean history, religion, literature, and visual culture. The second week will address twentieth- and twenty-first-century Korean history, economics, politics, and popular culture. Session leaders are drawn from the faculty of the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa and other institutions.
Team applications of 2–3 faculty members are particularly welcomed. Participants will receive a travel stipend of $400 and lodging in the East-West Center faculty guesthouse. Participant home institutions are asked to cover remaining travel costs and a program fee of $150.
The program is sponsored by the Asian Studies Development Program, a joint initiative of the East-West Center and the University of Hawai‘i. Dr. Peter D. Hershock and Dr. Edward J. Shultz are co-directors of the summer 2018 program.
