Confucian Asia: Traditions and Transformations

A five-week institute for twenty-five college and university teachers on Confucianism in Asia.

"Confucian Asia: Traditions and Transformations, an NEH Summer Institute for College and University Teachers" is proposed as a five-week program for college and university teachers that explores the origins and influence of Confucianism as an evolving system of thought and practice, including its impacts on social dynamics, the arts and politics. Offering deep and context-rich engagement with key traditions and primary texts (in translation), the multidisciplinary program will enable 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 embraced the global ideals of modernization and industrialization. The program will introduce participants to current scholarship on Confucianism and enable them to develop new curricular materials for use in a wide range of humanities and social science courses.
