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 considers the region through the tropes of mind and body, from the lived practices of meditation, wellness, and martial arts to the historic rituals and philosophies about the body politic and national heads of state. Offered by The Ohio State University.
