2015

The 2015 institute explored two different ways of framing and teaching World History. Day One was dedicated to broad themes: Islam in South Asia over a period of a millennium, pre-industrial versus industrial food production, and the world through the lens of the Cold War. Day Two focused on detailed analysis of primary documents: artifacts of daily life in Ancient Rome, poetry in Tang Dynasty China, and the uses (and mis-uses) of visual arts in textbooks.
