The Program for Teaching East Asia, the NCTA National Coordinating Site at the University of Colorado, is accepting applications on rolling-admission basis for its 2016 summer institute on Korea.
Korea’s Journey into the 21st Century: Historical Contexts, Contemporary Issues. July 24-28, 2016. Rolling Admissions. Final application deadline: April 30, 2016. In this four-day residential summer institute on the University of Colorado Campus, secondary teachers will consider modern and contemporary South Korea’s distinct history, geography, intra-peninsular and international relations, and transnational cultural transmissions (e.g., K-pop, film, and design). Participants will work with specialists to learn about the Korean peninsula beyond the media coverage, drawing on Korean narratives and texts to enrich their teaching about contemporary South Korea in the classroom. Participants will receive travel allowance, room and board, materials, and stipend.
