This collaborative faculty development workshop is part of the outreach activities of the Asian Studies Development Program (ASDP) --- a joint project of the East-West Center and the University of Hawaii, established in 1990 with the mission of infusing Asian content throughout the undergraduate curriculum. The workshop will take place on the campus of the University of Redlands, 65 miles east of Los Angeles. It is open to full-time faculty from North American colleges and universities. Approximately 35 applicants will be selected for participation. Both scholars in Asian Studies and non-Asianists are welcome to apply.
The workshop will begin with a keynote speech on "Making a Life Significant: Confucianism and Dewey in Dialogue" by Dr. Roger Ames of the University of Hawaii on the evening of Friday, October 18. There will be three 2-hour sessions on Saturday, Oct. 19. Each session will begin with a presentation by an invited speaker, followed by a discussion. The scheduled sessions are: "Human Rights, Human Wrongs: Does Culture Matter?" with Dr. Peter Hershock (East-West Center) and Dr. Roger Ames; "Building a Sense of Community in Japanese Urban Neighborhood" with Dr. Sawa Becker (Univ. of Redlands) and Dr. C. Scott Littleton (Occidental College); "'Romance of the Fruit Peddler': Images of Urban Transformation in Early Twentieth Century China" with Dr. Paul Pickowicz (University of California, San Diego).
There will be a banquet on the evening of Oct. 19, followed by informal discussions and film screenings. All invited speakers will also participate in the concluding general discussion on Sunday morning.
