ARTISTS RESPOND TO 20TH CENTURY EAST ASIAN HISTORY AND CULTURE: IMAGES AND IDEAS FOR YOUR K-12 CLASSROOM

Date: July 7-11, 2014
Location: University of Washington, Seattle

Artists Respond will explore the events of the turbulent 20th century from the perspective of visual artists of China, Korea, and Japan. Throughout this period of great conflict, arts have been employed and mobilized to reflect the ever-changing political, economic, and social landscape of East Asia. Taught by Melanie King, Seattle Central College art history faculty, this NCTA seminar will focus on the cultural and social history of East Asia as told through the visual and literary artists of the day. Special attention will be given to the interconnectedness of these nations through a shared philosophical, religious, and cultural history. Participants will explore and analyze both visual and print materials as primary sources.

Educators in elementary and secondary schools who have the opportunity to apply course content in their classes are invited to apply. The program is offered free of charge thanks to the Freeman Foundation NCTA grant to the East Asia Resource Center. Educators must commit to attending all sessions and to participate. Clock hours, materials, and images are available upon successful completion of background readings and class assignments.
