Japan's Floating World Free K-12 Workshop for Educators on September 28


Japan’s Floating World: Politics, Art, and Society During the Edo Period (1603-1868) Ι September 28, 2019, 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., UNC-Chapel Hill

The Edo period (江戸時代, Edo jidai) or Tokugawa period (徳川時代) in Japan from 1603 to 1868 was a critical period in Japanese social, economic, political and cultural history. The Carolina Asia Center, Ackland Art Museum, and North Carolina Teaching Asia Network is excited to offer a free K-12 educator workshop dedicated to the Edo period on September 28, 2019 at UNC-Chapel Hill. “Japan’s Floating World: Politics, Art, and Society during the Edo Period (1603-1868)” will allow NC educators to learn about the history of the Edo period and will investigate questions such as: Who collected and owned art and what were these forms of art? What was the political structure of Japan? What did woodblock prints tell us about society and culture? Three lecturers, Dr. Morgan Pitelka, Dr. Yixin Chen, and Madison Folks, will introduce us to the intersections of art, culture, and politics during the Edo period during the first part of the workshop, and then we will visit the Ackland Museum to look at woodblock prints and other forms of art during the second part of the workshop. We will close the workshop with presentations from UNC staff on K-16 Asia- related resources.
