Pandemic Pedagogy: COVID-19 and Education about Asia

With the onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic, countries around the world responded by closing borders, shutting down market access, and stoking xenophobic nationalism. The so-called “China virus” led to a metaphorical pandemic of anti-Asian sentiment, with numerous companies, governments, and individuals infected. The study of Asia and cross-cultural difference has rarely been more important than now. Come join the authors of Teaching About Asia in a Time of Pandemic to discuss ways in which we can use case studies from the pandemic to enhance our Asia-related curriculum. Participants will engage in conversation with the authors and will receive a complimentary copy of the book.
