The Center for European Studies and Global Studies will be hosting a K-12 Teacher Workshop, 20-24 June 2011 on the UW-Madison campus. The theme for the workshop is Europe and the Developing World: Development, Health and Aid.
This workshop will explore the history of Europe’s relationship with the developing world, exploring both policy and public attitudes, exploitation and assistance, from the height of colonialism, through the uncertainties of the immediate post-colonial period to current global issues that unite as well as separate the nations of Europe from the developing world. To what extent has current European policy been shaped by the colonial past? How do attitudes to the developing world differ from EU member state to member state? And how has the recent economic crisis affected current development aid, development policy and long term development goals?
Dates: 20-24 June 2011
Location: Madison, WI
Open to all educators, this workshop is geared to K-12 educators.
Program is co-sponsored by Global Studies & the Center for European Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
