Central Asia in World History

A two-week institute for twenty-five school teachers on the role of Central Asia as a crossroads of trade and intercultural exchange.

A two-week Summer Institute, July 15-27, 2012, for 25 middle and high school teachers in various humanities disciplines on the topic of Central Asia as a factor in world history. The Institute will engage teachers in a deeper understanding of how Central Asia has historically functioned as a crossroads of intercultural exchange, connecting the great civilizations on the Eurasian periphery, giving rise to world empires of its own in antiquity and the medieval era, and serving as the playing ground for the Anglo-Russian 'Great Game' in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. This will be done through expert presentations, analysis of primary material, both narrative and documentary, screenings and discussion of relevant films, immersion in traditional food and music of the region, and the development of lesson plans for classroom use.
