This multidisciplinary program will facilitate deep and context-rich engagement with key traditions and primary texts (in translation), enabling participants to appreciate how common Confucian values were given different practical and institutional expression as they were carried from China to Korea, Japan and Vietnam, and as East Asia adopted and adapted the global ideals of modernization and industrialization. Designed to strike a balance between the needs both for breadth an depth in engaging traditions that are culturally and historically distant, the Institute will introduce participants to current scholarship on Confucianism and provide abundant resources for developng course materials for use in a wide range of humanities and social science disciplines.
NEH Stipend. Participants will receive a total stipend of $3,900 to help meet costs associated with attending the Institute, including travel, subsidized housing in the East-West Center guesthouse, meals, and required Institute texts. A stipend check will be disbursed on the first day of the Institute. Participants accepted into the program are expected to attend all sessions, arriving on June 12, 2016.
