Teaching Tokyo at the Mead Art Museum

Mellon Workshop for Five College Faculty

December 14, 2012 - 9:30 am to 12:30 pm (already occurred)

This three-hour “eyes-on” exploration of the Mead’s rich collection of images of Tokyo is open to Five College faculty members from any discipline interested in incorporating original works of art from the Mead’s collection into their teaching and research.

Led by Professor Samuel C. Morse, curator of the exhibition Reinventing Tokyo: Japan’s Largest City in the Artistic Imagination, this museum workshop will offer an opportunity to learn in depth about a range of Mead artworks and to consider ways in which faculty can use these artworks in courses across the disciplines—from Anthropology to Architecture, Art History to Film Studies, Asian Languages and Civilizations to Psychology, History to Sociology, and many more.

Eligibility: Five College faculty members in any discipline are eligible to apply. The workshop is limited to TWELVE participants on a first-come, first-served basis.

Stipend for participants: Participants will receive a stipend of $250.

Registration: To register for the workshop, please send your name and position title to Pamela J. Russell, Head of Education and Andrew W. Mellon Curator of Academic Programs, Mead Art Museum, Amherst College (prussell@amherst.edu, 413-542-8229).
