Summer Teacher Institute 2023: “The Long 19th Century in the Middle East and North Africa, and Its Global Impact”

July 31 @ 10:00 am - August 4 @ 2:00 pm EDT

Istanbul in the 19th century

Annual institute sponsored by Georgetown University’s Center for Contemporary Arab Studies and Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding

The Summer Teacher Institute 2023 will continue the thread of past institutes for educators looking at the MENA region in a global context, and in close relation to European cultural trends that play a major role in world historical narratives. Having studied the Renaissance and the Enlightenment as globally influenced phenomena, this institute will explore the period known as the Long Nineteenth Century—taking a view from the mid-eighteenth century to the early decades of the twentieth century. The object is to provide a framework for understanding and teaching about the forces, groups and individuals who were agents of the enormous changes that took place during that time period, and its impacts on people at all levels of society. 

Attendees will receive access to teaching resources, readings and other media.

Register at this link. Light breakfast and lunch will be served daily. Join us if you can for the in-person vibe! Virtual attendees also welcome, nationally and internationally.

This program is made possible by a Title VI grant from the United States Department of Education, which is funding a National Resource Center on the Middle East and North Africa at Georgetown University, and by support from the Center for Contemporary Arab Studies and the Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown.
