Simulcasts and Webinars

Simulcasts. These are typically two-hour live, streamed audiovisual presentations that will bring the expertise and cutting-edge research of leading scholars in the field to teachers throughout the country. The simulcast format is also well suited for programs that focus on introducing teachers to the growing number of primary source digital collections.

Webinars. These 60- to 90-minute interactive online classes will introduce teachers to a variety of topics. The short format lends itself to large audiences and concise information on high-interest and timely topics that can be easily and immediately adapted for use as daily lessons in K-12 courses.

Lost Japan, with author Alex Kerr

Start Date: February 11, 2021
End Date: February 11, 2021
Time Detail: 7-8pm ET
Type of Course: Simulcasts and Webinars
Course Description: “Originally written in Japanese, this passionate, vividly personal book draws on the author's experiences in Japan over 30 years. Alex Kerr brings to life the ritualized world of Kabuki, retraces his initiation into Tokyo's boardrooms during the heady Bubble Years, and tells the story of the hidden valley that became his home. But the book is not just a love letter. Haunted throughout by nostalgia for the Japan of old, Kerr's book is part paean to that great country and culture, part epitaph in the face of contemporary Japan's environmental and cultural destruction.”
Co-sponsored by the UMass Fine Arts Center Asian Arts and Culture program.
