Teacher Summer Institute on Gender and Global Politics.
The Institute for Global Studies and the European Studies Consortium at the University of Minnesota are pleased to announce its schedule of Teacher Summer Institutes. The Institutes are provocative teacher summer seminars on global and international topics for K-12 and community college educators. Teachers learn content related to the seminar themes, explore related curriculum materials, and learn new strategies and skills for incorporating these global issues into their curriculum. Language teachers are encouraged to participate in these opportunities to create exciting new curriculum for language learners.
Gender and Global Politics
June 16-20, 2003; 9:00-3:00 p.m.
This course will employ cross-cultural, geographical and historical perspectives to analyze questions of representation, voice, and agency. We will explore the ways in which gender, class and other axes of social power and difference shape the ways that "third world" women (and men) determine their own cultures of resistance and praxis of empowerment. The major themes of this workshop are grounded in the international political-economic contexts that underscore the realities of global interconnectedness, as well as the uneven ways in which different communities and nations get incorporated into the "global." Richa Nagar, from the Department of Women's Studies at the University of Minnesota, teaches the course. This is a non-credit course; Professional credits and CEU's can be arranged. Registration fee: $125.
Registration is due May 30, 2003. You can register online. The Summer Institutes are funded by a Title VI grant from the Department of Education.
