American Connections to Asia with Dr. Peggy Christoff
Saturday, March 7, 2015
On September 20, Peg Christoff presented a paper, "Asian Connections to America: Experiential Teaching with a State-by-State Approach," at the Mid-Atlantic Association for Asian Studies/NYAsian Studies Annual Conference. The purpose was to introduce the importance of learning about Asian root cultures in an introductory course on Asian studies. With examples gathered from state historical societies, art museums, and humanities councils in a variety of U.S. states, Christoff discussed a teaching method that incorporates different levels and layers of U.S. interactions and connections with the Asian world.
