EASC Webinars

The EASC Webinar Program is designed to help K-12 teachers, Indiana University faculty, staff and students, and anyone else with an interest in East Asia to become more knowledgeable about East Asia and to encourage them to pass that knowledge on to their students, friends, and colleagues. In spring 2015, EASC will hold a total of three Webinars covering diverse topics such as Korean pop culture, Chinese Buddhist painting, and Japanese folklore.
