1) identify an option from the list below; 2) write a 200-300 word essay/report on the option
E-C Options List: Generally, any sort of reading/media/event related to East Asia can be written about for the E-C Option. However, we encourage you to choose materials related to issues of Diversity and Breadth.
You may mix and match EC items – or come up with something on your own. Here are some examples:
Watch ½ hour of a broadcast from a country in East Asia in the Crane Café in Hagerty Hall (they have live feeds from around the world all day long); choose one in a language you DON’T understand, and try to figure out what they are saying/doing based on non-verbal cues (this is a lot of fun, and sorta’ like being in another country)
Films or videos related to East Asia (you may want to watch as a group and discuss it afterwards – then each person will write their own response)
Book chapters, articles, newspapers, websites, etc. related to East Asia. Please list the complete sources (author, publisher, page numbers, date, or website address). For instance, read and respond to articles on news sites from Mainland China, South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan. Note: You may use any of the literature readings in the modules or assigned readings.
Lectures, exhibits, demos, plays, performances, conventions, restaurants, etc. related to East Asia. (Attend and write up an essay about your experience.) In the past, some students have even gone to places like the Dawes Arboretum near Newark, which has a Japanese garden. We will draw your attention to any events we hear about.
Your unique ideas (Preferably discuss with an instructor first if you have questions about whether it will be accepted. Also note that we prefer that you do a variety of extra credit topics, instead of doing all of your articles on the same type of thing.)
