Associate Professor of Art History Stephen J. Goldberg conducted a two-day workshop, Frames of Engagement: Looking at Asia Through Art, at Middlesex Community College, on Nov. 7-8. The event was supported by the Asian Studies Development Program, East-West Center, Honolulu, Hawai’i.

This workshop provided insight on how to “look” at Asia through its art and included practical ideas for enhancing courses and curriculum in Asian studies. It focused on modern Japan and China and the impact of cultural contact with the West, including a special workshop-within-a workshop devoted to technology and curricular development, mainly through PowerPoint, podcasts, and object-based inquiry. Participants also had the opportunity for first-hand experience with Asian art objects with a guided tour at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.

Goldberg delivered presentations on “Ukiyo-e: The Art of the Floating World in Edo Japan”; “Nihonga: Forging a Modern Identity from Meiji to the Present”; “From Socialist Realism to Cynical Realism: The Art of Modern China”; and “Technology & Curricular Development.”
