We are dedicated to promoting a broad-based, interdisciplinary approach to East Asian calligraphy education. Critical to this approach is effective integration of calligraphic theory, practice, and pedagogy in meaningful humanistic, sociocultural, and scientific contexts.
We are committed to developing new and creative theories, methods, materials, and means of research, teaching and learning in East Asian calligraphy in the digital age.
We are open to engaging a diverse audience interested in East Asian calligraphy and related subjects. Potential topics of discourses include but are not limited to traditional and modern visual arts that employ writing, linguistic and cultural studies pertinent to writing systems, as well as comparative research on calligraphic traditions and practices in East Asia and other regions and cultures.
