Image, Text, and Language at the Intersection of Cultures – East Asia and Beyond

This four-session online seminar explores the relationship between image, text, and language in East Asia and beyond. Each week we will examine different genres such as woodblock prints, scrolls, manga, and multimedia expressions from an interdisciplinary approach to consider shifting language-text traditions and practices. Themes and topics to be considered include nature, religion, intercultural exchange, and adaptation. Participants will complete and develop creative activities, which they can use in the classroom to help students use images and text in combination to express ideas and explain the world.
