Europe / Middle East Intersections

K-12 Teachers' One-Day Seminar

Saturday, June 02, 2007
10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
10383 Bunche Hall
Los Angeles, CA 90095

The histories of Europe and the Middle East have been intertwined since ancient times—each has influenced the culture of other through relationships ranging from trade to battles, from collaboration to conquest.  The Center for European and Eurasian Studies, the Center for Near Eastern Studies, and UCLA History-Geography Project are sponsoring a summer institute and two preliminary sessions for teachers of Grades 6-11 focused on the synergies resulting from this intersection of cultures.  Attendance at the preliminary sessions is independent of attendance at the summer institute. 


Preliminary Sessions

  • March 17, 2007-10:00 A.M.-1:00 P.M.-Dr. Patrick Geary speaking on “Looking at the East from the West”
  • June 2, 2007-10:00 A.M.-1:00 P.M.-Dr. James Gelvin speaking on “Looking at the West from the East”

There is a $30 charge to hold your reservation; if you attend both sessions, your check will be returned to you at the end of the June 2 event.
