Teaching Asia through Pop Culture: The Experience of Raising Interest and Awareness of Asia to Undergraduates

 Speaker: Dr. Catherine Gomez (RMIT)

Tuesday 17th September 2013, 3pm to 4.45pm

Abstract

Teaching Asia to students who opt to study Asian Studies and to those who do general courses come with their own set of challenges and rewards. Through my experience

teaching both Asian Studies and (very large cohorts of) Communication Studies students at RMIT University, I discuss ways in which pop culture can be used to raise undergraduate awareness and interest in Asia.
