Upcoming workshop: "Teaching Toward a Sustainable Future" to be held on Saturday, July 20, 2019. Register Now!

The Center for East Asian Studies offers a number of professional development opportunities for K-12 teachers in Kansas and Western Missouri. Our teachers' workshops are designed to enhance teachers' knowledge of East Asian culture and their ability to teach this to their students. To find what workshops we are offering, sign up for Outreach Notes, our outreach newsletter. To sign up, send an email to ceas@ku.edu

The Center also houses the Kansas Consortium for Teaching about Asia (KCTA), which offers professional development classes in East Asian history and culture for teachers interested in learning how to incorporate Chinese, Japanese, and Korean content into the curriculum for all subject areas and grade levels. Classes are given throughout the year in either face-to-face or online formats. To learn more, please visit www.kcta.ku.edu.

During a teacher's workshop at the 2015 Greater Kansas City Japan Festival, educators get a chance to try taiko drumming.

Statement from Director

Dear CEAS Community,

I hope you and your families are all well. As you know the university has announced the closures of most if not all events for the Spring semester. Therefore, CEAS will also suspend all events for the rest of the semester.  This includes the Silk Road Symposium, the North Korea Inside Out conference, the Kite Festival as well as Tea and Talks and invited speakers. We will reschedule these events for Fall 2020.

The most important thing is the health and well being of the university and Lawrence community. This is a challenging time, but we will get through this and CEAS events will continue in Fall. You can follow CEAS information and schedule changes on CEAS web page and social media. 

Take Care,

John Kennedy

Director of the Center for East Asian Studies
