SoA Associate Professor of Theory and History Lisa Schrenk has written a short article that will appear in the next issue of the Asian Studies Development Program NewsPart of the East-West Center, ASDP was created to support and enhance undergraduate teaching and learning about Asian cultures and societies in all areas of study. The article, "Using Images in the Asian Studies Classroom," discusses the process of selecting appropriate visuals and incorporating them effectively into course lectures. 
 
Also, in addition to presenting the paper "Promoting Motoring: Ford, GM, and the Corporate Automotive Displays at World’s Fairs in the 1930s" at the 2013 SW/TX Popular Cultural Assoc./American Culture Association annual meeting, she was asked by conference organizers to discuss her past position as Education Director at the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio in a panel discussion on alternative scholarly careers. (FUN FACT: One of the other panelists was David Peterson, president of the Language Creation Society and developer of Dothraki, the alien languages used in HBO's television series Game of Thrones.) Since the conference, she has been invited to serve as the chair of the Material Culture and Built Environment stream, for the now more succinctly named Southwest Popular Culture Association.
 
This week, Lisa is presenting Exhibiting Détente, Exposing Tension at the 1939-40 Golden Gate International Exposition at the annual meeting of the Society of Architectural Historians in Buffalo, New York.
