Introduction: Teaching Asia Through Film
This group of essays originated from the workshop "Teaching Asia Through Film," held at the University of Pittsburgh, May 3-4, 1996. The event was organized by Keiko McDonald and Sheldon Lu, and was sponsored by the Asian Studies Program, the Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures, and the Film Studies Program at the University of Pittsburgh. For the past decade, the Asian Studies Program at the University of Pittsburgh has been one of the major undergraduate National Resources Centers (NRC) in East Asian Studies designated by the U.S. Department of Education. The workshop was largely supported with NRC funds. Speakers include John A. Lent, Keiko McDonald, Lucy Fischer, Marcia Landy, Anne T. Ciecko, Gina Marchetti, and Sheldon Lu. Some of the papers have been revised afterwards for publication in this issue of Asian Cinema, whereas others retain their original context of presentation at the workshop.
