East Asian Migration and Borders: Stories of Identity and Connection

2022 Professional Development Workshop for K-14 Educators
Saturday, December 10, 2022
9:00 AM-4:00 PM
Room 110 Weiser Hall Map
Registration required here:

The media is filled with global stories of migration that portray the complex experiences of migrants and the reactions of their final destination countries. This workshop will explore the historical, cultural, and contemporary political borders within China, Japan, and Korea and how conceptions of identity from this region travel the world through art and technology. Featuring lectures from prominent scholars and teacher-based activities, participants will gain insights into shifting cultural identities and establishing a sense of belonging across and within borders.

What does it mean to “cross the line?” How can stories of emigres and sojourners of East Asia change the way we teach world history, geography, government, and the arts?

Registration is required to attend any portion of this workshop. Complete the Google Form by midnight on Thursday, December 1st.
