Infusing Korean Studies into the Undergraduate Curriculum

ASDP Summer Institute:
Infusing Korean Studies into the Undergraduate Curriculum

The annual summer institute on Infusing Asian Studies into the Undergraduate Curriculum is a multidisciplinary program that fosters faculty and program development aimed at enhancing undergraduate teaching and learning about Asian cultures and societies. Hosted annually since 1991, the institute on Infusing Asian Studies into the Undergraduate Curriculum offers undergraduate educators the opportunity to interact with leading Asian studies experts in an intensive program of lectures, discussions, film screenings, site visits and cultural events.

Infusing Korean Studies into the Undergraduate Curriculum is a two-week faculty- and curriculum-development summer institute that will help develop and enhance undergraduate Korean studies in American colleges and universities. The program of lectures, group discussions, film screenings and individual team meetings will equip participating faculty teams to develop curriculum materials and strategic plans for expanding undergraduate Korean studies offerings on their campuses through a rich, multidisciplinary exploration of Korean history, literature, visual and performing arts, religion, politics and contemporary social dynamics. The Institute will be co-directed by Dr. Peter Hershock and Dr. Cheehyung Harrison Kim.

Hosted with support from the Academy for Korean Studies, the 2019 institute is designed to meet the needs of educators committed to developing new Korea-focused courses and course modules, and to building Korean studies programs on their home campuses. The Institute is open to individual applicants, but special consideration will be given to applications from two- to three-person teams from colleges and universities committed to advancing undergraduate Korean studies.

Participants will receive lodging in the East-West Center faculty guesthouse and a travel stipend of $400. Their home institutions are asked to cover remaining travel costs and a program fee of $150.
