colorado: summer program on east asia in the early modern world

A terrific summer opportunity from our National Consortium for Teaching about Asia partner, the University of Colorado's Program for Teaching East Asia. Apply early as this will fill up.

Applications now available for the TEA-NCTA 2019 Summer Institute, East Asia in the Early Modern World.  July 7-11, 2019. University of Colorado Boulder

What do sources from and about merchants, pirates, diplomats, missionaries, soldiers, and artists tell us about early modern East Asia? Study with scholars and specialists to consider the interconnected East Asian world (1271-1842) and access resources to develop material for the new AP World History: Modern course. In this four-day institute, teachers will gain an understanding of the political, economic, and cultural systems of the early modern East Asian world and reconsider narratives of encounters and conflicts with European imperialist powers. 

The institute will be held on the CU Boulder campus and application is open to secondary social studies teachers nationwide. Teachers selected for the programs will receive a travel stipend, room and board, and resource materials.  For more details, see detailed flyer and application. Application deadline is March 18, 2019. For questions, contact catherine.ishida@colorado.edu, 303.735.5115.

This program is made possible through generous funding from the Freeman Foundation to NCTA at the Program for Teaching East Asia, University of Colorado.
