Join Dr. Segal for a stimulating evening of learning as we explore ways to bring Asian content into your teaching.  We’ll provide historical context on current events from the news, discuss ways in which Asia fits into world history, literature, and culture curricula, and offer a preview of the Midwest Conference on Asian Affairs.  Get practical suggestions to help incorporate Asia into your teaching!  Receive complimentary access to the conference (Oct. 16 to 18)!  Whether you are already offering your students a lot of Asia content or considering ways to enhance your lessons, you’ll find lots of valuable tips in this single-evening program!
