Infusing Korean Studies into the Undergraduate Curriculum

Dates: July 31 - August 11, 2017
Location: East-West Center, Honolulu, Hawai‘i

Director: Peter Hershock

This multidisciplinary, two-week faculty development program will offer undergraduate educators opportunities to interact with leading Korean studies experts in an intensive program of lectures, discussions, film screenings, and cultural events. The program is designed to assist institutional teams and individual faculty members develop course curricula and strategies for Asian studies program development. The first week of the program will include sessions on premodern Korean history, religion, literature and visual culture. The second week will address 20th and 21st century Korean history, economics, politics and popular culture. Team applications of 2-3 faculty members are particularly welcomed. Participants will receive a travel stipend of $400 and lodging in the East-West Center faculty guesthouse. Participant home institutions are asked to cover remaining travel costs and a program fee of $150.

Directors: Dr. Peter Hershock (East-West Center) and Dr. Edward Shultz (University of Hawai‘i)

Presenting Faculty: Harrison Kim (University of Hawai‘i), Kyung Hyun Kim (University of California, Irvine), Yung Hee Kim (University of Hawai‘i), Byongwon Lee (University of Hawai‘i), Sang-hyop Lee (University of Hawai‘i), Jin Y. Park (American University), Maya Stiller (University of Kansas), Myung-ji Yang (University of Hawai‘i)

It is hoped that this will be the first of 3 years of Korean studies development activities, with subsequent years to include 2-day workshops hosted on selected participant team home campuses and a field seminar hosted that will enable experiential learning partnership development in Korea.

Application deadline: March 15, 2018.
