Understanding History's Many Voices Through Sources

Event Format
In person
CGIS South, 1730 Cambridge Street, Cambridge, MA

Developing real historical understanding requires that students are given the opportunity to develop historical reasoning through exposure to historical texts and narratives. In order to hone their analytical sensibilities and to understand the cause and effect relationships inherent in historical happenings, students must have the opportunity to consider and learn from a wide variety of historical sources. In this workshop, participants will consider new ways of teaching about imperial, Soviet, and post-Soviet Russia/Eurasia through the use of maps, data, oral histories, and interviews.  

Breakfast and lunch will be provided.

There is a $25 registration fee. Checks can be made out to the President and Fellows of Harvard College and mailed ahead of time to the address below or brought to the workshop. Fifteen PDPs will be awarded to all participants.
