Deadline for NEH Summer Institute
March 15, 2016
Apply now for our NEH Summer Institute “Modern Mongolia: Heritage and Tradition Amid Changing Realities”! The institute is a four-week workshop (June 6-July 1, 2016) designed to provide 25 US undergraduate university and college educators with resources needed to be able to expand curricular offerings in East, Inner, or Central Asian Studies. The question of how Modern Mongolia is navigating its place in the world will be explored through the humanities; art, literature, music, and dance provide useful lenses to view how cultures in Mongolia are changing and still yearning for the past.
The Institute will engage educators with stimulating presentations, materials, and discussions, and provide them with necessary tools to build draft course modules tailored to their institutional and individual teaching circumstances. Ultimately, we strive to provide context to enable teaching about a changing Mongolia. The Summer Institute will be held at the American Center for Mongolian Studies (ACMS) on the historic campus of the University of Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia.
For full details on the program, including speakers and detailed schedule of activities, see the NEH Institute part of our website .
