Rage and Grief: Addressing the Complicated History of Japan and the US in the Contemporary Classroom

Join documentary filmmaker Linda Hoaglund and educators Benjamin O'Donnell (World History) and Kachina Leigh (Studio Art and Art History) as they discuss the multiple ways in which Linda’s film, ANPO Art x War, can be brought into the classroom. Using art and interviews with the artists, this documentary traces the impact that the US military has had and continues to have in Japan. Teachers will learn ways to share this history with students as well as explore the interwoven roles of victim, perpetrator, and collaborator that resonate in today's political climate. This workshop will be applicable to teachers in the arts, humanities, and history - both past and present.
