How can an artist, a particular piece of art, or an artistic genre represent a historical period? In this lesson students identify criteria they would use to choose a representative artist or art form to speak for another country and era and analyze artist Tezuka Osamu and his anime creation, Astro Boy, to represent late twentieth-century (1945-present). Through this process, they expand their knowledge about contemporary Japanese culture and develop their analytical skills, while becoming acquainted with a remarkable artist, his creations, and the messages they conveyed.

One-hour webinar with Shawna Yang Ryan, author of "Green Island." "Taipei, February 28, 1947: As an uprising rocks Taiwan, a young doctor is taken from his newborn daughter by Chinese Nationalists, on charges of speaking out against the government. Although he eventually returns to his family, his arrival is marked by alienation from his loved ones and paranoia among his community. Years later, this troubled past follows his youngest daughter to America, where, as a mother and a wife, she too is forced to decide between what is right and what might save her family, the same choice she witnessed her father make many years before. A stunningly lyrical story of a family and a nation grappling with the nuances of complicity and survival, Green Island raises the question: how far would you go for the ones you love?"

The Song Dynasty: China in 1000 CE, The Most Advanced Society in the World
Only Sharing Permitted

Rating

In 1000, 1100, 1200, and 1300, China was the most advanced place in the world. Marco Polo (1254-1324) recognized this when he got to China in the late 13th century after traveling through much of Asia. In what is now Europe, this was the period now referred to as the Middle Ages, which fostered the Crusades and witnessed the rise of Venice, the mercantile center that was Marco Polo's home. A magnificent picture scroll painted by a Chinese artist in the 12th century provides us with a look at society and urban life in China during this time.
