University of Pennsylvania – Japan Study Tour for Educators
Phila-Nipponica 2010: Japan in the 21st Century

DEADLINE: January 22, 2010

The University of Pennsylvania Center for East Asian Studies is pleased to announce that it will offer the 11th year in the Phila-Nipponica Project, a series that has helped over one hundred teachers in the Greater Philadelphia area enhance their classroom teaching about Japan and Asia through seminars, summer study tours, and curriculum development assistance devoted to Japan.

We are currently seeking applications from social studies and humanities teachers in middle and high schools who have a strong interest in developing or enhancing a Japan studies program.

Project activities include:

• A series of intensive all-day Saturday seminars with scholars (tentatively February 27, March 20, May 1) on the Univ. of Pennsylvania campus. Attendance is mandatory.
• A 18-day study tour of Japan in June/July 2010—tentative dates are June 24-July 13. You must be available all of this period.
• Three mandatory curriculum implementation sessions in Fall 2010.

Twelve teachers will be selected to participate this year in the project. An application form is available on the Center for East Asian Studies website: http://www.ceas.sas.upenn.edu/

All applications must be submitted to the Center for East Asian Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. The deadline for submitting applications is January 22, 2010. All applicants will be notified whether or not they have been accepted to this project by February 5, 2010.
