Write About Asia, Winter 2024

Write about Asia is a writing workshop offered by the East Asia Resource Center at the University of Washington in conjunction with the Seattle Asian Art Museum’s (SAAM) Gardner Center for Asian Art and Ideas and its seasonal Saturday University Lecture Series, during which participants delve into new themes with a different speaker each week. Challenging, thought-provoking, and sometimes surprising, this long-running and always popular lecture series incorporates audience discussion as experts from around the world join us to share their insights on Asia throughout time. This series will draw inspiration from Renegade Edo and Paris: Japanese Prints and Toulouse-Lautrec, focusing on the art of 18th- and 19th-century Japan as well as the ways in which culture travels across geographic boundaries.

Write About Asia is offered following each SAAM public lecture and is facilitated by Mary Roberts. During the workshop, time is given to solitary writing in response to the morning lecture. The workshop nurtures educators as writers through self-reflection and group discussion, and takes place after each lecture from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM.
