Sports and Leisure in East Asia: a summer foundational seminar for K-12 educators

What do people in East Asia do for fun?  If you’ve ever wondered about this, join us for a survey of the history and cultures of East Asia while exploring the leisure activities of each country. These include tai chi, mahjong, baseball, gardening, K-pop, watching Godzilla, reading Astro Boy, and so on. We’ll push back against the idea that East Asian life is all work and no play! We’ll also cover the sorts of topics a foundational seminar usually addresses, such as Confucian philosophy, Vietnamese history, Buddhism, and the role of Taiwan in East Asia.
