Summer Residential Programs

Ties That Bind: Honolulu

Honolulu offers a unique opportunity to learn about China, Japan and Korea without needing a passport or worrying about currency exchange, but still with a dash of jet lag.

In this one-week NCTA Summer Institute, 17 participants will explore Chinese, Japanese and Korean culture and history in Honolulu, with the goal of deepening their understanding of the connections between the U.S. and East Asia through the people, places and events found there--both in the past and the present. The institute will feature daily field trips, hands-on cultural experiences, and guided tours by local experts. Topics to be covered will likely include historical events in China, Japan and Korea with a Hawaii connection; where immigrants came from and why; current ties; prominent historical figures; and cultural identity.
