University of California San Diego email@example.com "Istanbul between East and West: Crossroads of History" is an NEH Summer Institute for school teachers. This Institute offers a dynamic 3-week academic experience in Istanbul, Turkey from June 23 to July 13, 2013. This Institute will provide an intensive overview of a city and region that has played a pivotal role in ancient, medieval, and modern world history. The Institute uses Istanbul as the intellectual point of departure to explore the Byzantine and Ottoman Empires and modern Turkey, and situates this history in the larger context of the Mediterranean and Middle East and, with its emphasis on cross-cultural encounters and global comparisons, in the broader framework of world history. Designed for middle and high school teachers, the Institute aims to assist educators to more accurately reflect the region's significance in curricula and classes. Participants will generate ways to incorporate the Institute content, which corresponds to the National Curriculum Standards for Social Studies, into the classroom experience. There is no Turkish language requirement for participation and educators at all career stages, including graduate students preparing for careers as school teachers, are encouraged to apply.
