Philosophical Ideas and Artistic Pursuits in the Traditions of Asia and the West

A yearlong workshop for seven full-time and seven part-time humanities and fine arts faculty members to compare aesthetic concepts and beliefs in Asian and Western traditions through the study of philosophy and the fine arts.

College of DuPage, located in Glen Ellyn, Illinois, will plan and implement a year-long workshop series targeting seven full-time and seven part-time Humanities and Fine Arts faculty members. Faculty will participate in lectures which will set the stage for extensive dialogues with a group of distinguished scholars in the fields of philosophy, Asian studies, and fine arts. The intellectual framework is intended to foster comparative analyses of differences and convergences of aesthetic concepts and beliefs via exemplary arts and philosophies of Asian and Western traditions. The goal is to promote knowledge about global cultural contexts in a collegial work and learning environment led by highly qualified scholars in their respective fields.
