A website on Afghanistan's history, human geography, culture, and art that would include digitized images and primary sources, as well as teaching materials.

"Rediscovering Afghanistan, Crossroad of Cultures" is a 2-year, materials development project intended primarily for high school and college teachers and, secondarily, their students. The project will create digitized primary resources presented in a humanities context to introduce Afghanistnan's history, society and culture, and provide a lens with which to analyze how they have shaped contemporary Afghanistan. The final product will be a web-based teaching guide in the form of a multimedia website. Materials available on the site for teachers will include background essays in both text and audio-visual formats, lesson plans and a bibliography, supported by richly annotated primary textual, visual and musical resources. The site will focus on Afghanistan's history, human geography, culture and art, but sidebars throughout will draw links to current events. Primary materials will be drawn from collections at Williams College, the Sakata Music Collection and Asia Society's own archives.
