College faculty and administrators are invited to register for the eleventh annual “Reacting to the Past” Summer Institute at Barnard College (NY), June 9-12, 2011.
Workshop Date: 2011-06-09 (June 9, 2011)
“Reacting to the Past” consists of elaborate games, set in the past, in which students are assigned roles with “victory objectives” informed by seminal texts in the history of ideas. The program was the recipient of the American Council on Education’s Hesburgh Award in 2004 for outstanding pedagogical innovation in undergraduate teaching and learning.
Participants will learn about the curriculum by engaging in intensive two-day workshops on particular games ranging from "The Threshold of Democracy: Athens in 403 B.C." to “Marlowe and Shakespeare, 1592”, “Red Clay, 1835: Cherokee Removal and the Meaning of Sovereignty”, and "Defining a Nation: India, 1945".
