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.
History of War and Trauma: Psychological, Spiritual, Social Effects of War July 14-18, 2003; 9:00-3:00 p.m.
This course exams the problem of how wars end. Teachers will address the issues of how people live through and remember mass organized violence. We will read and discuss various strategies of survival and autobiographies from Cambodians, Vietnamese, Bosnians, and Tibetans. The course will combine a study of the economic and social effects of war, understandings of the private psychological and spiritual legacies, war/peace memorials, contradictions of responses to war, and the different ways of looking at photographs of war. Richard Kagan, Professor of History at Hamline University, teaches this 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.
