    Colonial Encounters

    Colonial Encounters | Teacher Resources

    This semester at the University of Central Arkansas, Dr. Zach Smith's HIST 2310: Introduction to Asian History students compiled resource guides on colonial encounters in Asia. Each of these guides include context, timelines, historical biographies, key texts/sources, discussion questions, and resources for further reading. We hope you can benefit from these thorough resource guides!

    In addition to the resources featured here, our Resources for Teachers page includes more general resources on East Asia as well as resource pages designated to specific East Asian countries (China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan). You can also find many other online materials listed on The National Consortium for Teaching About Asia's website. Be sure to also visit NCTA's Partner Sites, who provide excellent content on East Asia for K-12 educators.

    tibetan uprisingThe Tibetan Uprising

    In October 1950, the People's Republic of China invaded Tibet, which had for decades been independent. After 8 years of Chinese occupation, Tibet staged an uprising in March 1959. The invasion and the responding uprising began a bloody and politically complicated conflict that has resulted in the exile of the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan government, as well as remaining tensions between Tibet and the PRC. 

    Who We Are

    Housed within the Asian Studies Program at the University of Central Arkansas, the Arkansas NCTA aims to empower elementary and secondary school teachers to center East Asian art, literature, history, and culture in their classrooms.
