East Asian Culture & History Symposium Offered at
Lewis-Clark State College, in collaboration with the National Consortium
for Teaching About Asia and University of Washington's East Asia Resource Center, is
offering a symposium on learning and teaching about China and Japan during the
winter/spring of 2002.
Designed to encourage and facilitate the teaching of this important subject matter in the
K-12 classroom, the symposium will take place February 1-2, March1-2 and April 1-2 on the
LCSC campus. It is funded by the prestigious Freeman Foundation, which provides funds to
teach teachers, and will cover a range of subjects including history both ancient and
modern; social, philosophical and cultural structures, and current political and economic
conditions in China and Japan. In a time when the United States and, in particular, the
Pacific Northwest, has many associations with the people of these two countries, the
information and skills to be taught in this symposium are increasingly important.
The 30-hour symposium, to be taught by LCSC Professor of Asian History Marilyn Levine and
other Asian specialists, is open to teachers from northern Idaho and eastern Washington.
It includes possible college credit, stipends, and free materials in addition to materials
There will be no charge for attendance but registration is limited to 20 teachers and must
be received by January 12. Contact Marilyn Levine at 208-792-227O or firstname.lastname@example.org for
more information and to register.
