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.
