Teachers are invited to join a two-part book discussion with University of Washington cultural anthropologist Andrea Arai. It starts online in November and culminates in an evening with Professor Arai on Monday, December 9, on the UW Seattle campus. Professor Arai co-edited the 2013 book Global Futures in East Asia: Youth, Nation, and the New Economy in Uncertain Times and wrote one of the chapters. Growing out of two conferences, ethnographic research, and a team-taught UW course, this book from Stanford University Press explores ways young people are striving to understand themselves and their place in society. Discussing the book will illuminate current trends impacting young people in East Asian societies as well as the ways anthropologists explore, analyze, and write about culture. For a more in-depth description of the book, visit the Stanford University Press website.
This event is open to current K-12 and preservice teachers. Participants will receive a copy of the book and join an online discussion in November about the topics in key chapters and the questions that teachers would like Professor Arai to address in the face-to-face discussion. That discussion will take place from 5:15 to 8:30 on December 9. By participating both online and in person, teachers will earn five clock hours. The registration fee of $15 includes a copy of the book, a light dinner, five clock hours, and campus parking. Register online and mail your check, payable to the University of Washington, to the East Asia Resource Center (address below). Space is limited so sign up early. Once you have sent in your payment, a copy of the book will be mailed to you along with instructions about how to access the online discussion forum. For questions, contact the EARC at firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-543-1921.
