East Asia in Schools
The Center for East Asian Studies at the University of Pennsylvania is a National Resource Center through the U.S. Department of Education. One of our responsibilities as a center is to organize various outreach programs that serve the local communities. We currently offer a program in which Penn professors present one-hour lectures to classes on a variety of topics pertaining to East Asia, at no cost to your school.
These topics can include, but are not limited to:
- Ancient Chinese Thought
- Japanese Theater
- US-Japan Relations
- East Asian Architecture
- Music and Literature in Japan
- Introduction to Korea
For more information and to request a speaker please contact the Center.
East Asia K-12 Educator bulletin board
The Center for East Asian Studies also maintains a list of regional and national opportunities for K-12 educators to engage more with East Asia-related content.
