Mapping Past & Present: Spirits and Beasts of East Asia

Our virtual journey will introduce East Asia’s diverse cultures and environment while building and enhancing your tool chest of teaching resources for the classroom. Focusing on the regions that comprise present-day China, Japan, and Korea, participants will engage with experts and other educators in the field to explore major trends, global issues, and historic foundations that shape East Asian society. Join us in this free online seminar as we map the impact of these transnational forces in and beyond East Asia through the lenses of geography, art, religion, literature, and more! This year’s theme looks at the region from the legendary characters of myth and manga to the figurative demons of disease and war, as the contours of East Asia have been defined by its spirits and beasts, real and imagined, from time immemorial.
