Book & Film Groups

Global Asia Book Group

Explore “Asia” in its many manifestations through the lens of Global Asias (the notion of studying Asia transnationally and transculturally through the movement of people, ideas, and culture across place and time). Through a curated series of online book groups designed for high school teachers, this course will focus on stories that center the human experience against the backdrop of war. This series features four novels that link Asia (China, Tibet, Korea, Japan, and India) to North America (the United States and Canada) through multifaceted exploration of identity, migration, war, and resilience. Each book provides a unique lens through which to examine history complexities of life across our global community, making them valuable resources for educators looking to enrich their curriculum with diverse narratives and historical contexts.

This series will enrich educators’ understanding of diverse cultures and histories across Asia and equip them with tools to foster a more inclusive and global perspective in their classrooms. Each of these books offer a fantastic resource to explore themes of migration, identity, war and resilience with students, encouraging a deeper appreciation for the complex interconnections that define our world.
