Location: East-West Center, Honolulu, Hawaii

Project Co-Directors: Roger Ames (University of Hawaii) and Peter Hershock (East-West Center)

Website: www.asdp-confucianasia.org

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.

Confucian Asia: Traditions and Transformations

This multidisciplinary program, funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, will offer five weeks of context-rich and critical engagement with Confucian teachings, practices and primary texts (in translation), examining how they have shaped and been shaped by the cultures and societies of China, Korea, Japan and Vietnam. The program will consider how Confucianism addressed both personal and social needs in ways that were inseparable from the dynamics of intellectual exchange, artistic production, social organization and politics. Designed to strike a balance between the needs both for breadth and depth in engaging traditions that are culturally and historically distant, Confucian Asia will provide abundant resources for developing pedagogically-effective course materials across a wide range of humanities and social science disciplines. Applications will be welcomed from eligible fulltime and adjunct faculty, as well as qualified graduate students. Participants will receive a stipend of $3900 to help defray costs for travel, housing, meals and incidentals. Lodging will be available at the East-West Center guesthouse, Lincoln Hall.

Dates:  June 13- July 15, 2016
Location: East-West Center, Honolulu, HI

Application deadline: March 1, 2016.
