Modern Mongolia: Heritage and Tradition Amid Changing Realities

A four-week institute for twenty-five college and university faculty on modern Mongolian history, culture, and geography.

The American Center for Mongolian Studies (ACMS) at University of Pennsylvania seeks funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities for a 4-week Summer Institute on Modern Mongolia. The proposed institute would be held on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, from June 6 to July 1, 2016, and would be run by co-directors David Dettmann and Academic Lead Morris Rossabi. The goals of the proposed Institute are to provide undergraduate educators with resources needed to be able to expand curricular offerings in East, Inner, or Central Asian Studies, with a focus on familiarity with the unique case study of a quickly changing Mongolia. The Institute will be organized to engage educators with stimulating presentations, materials, and discussions, and to provide them with necessary tools to build draft course modules tailored to their institutional and individual teaching circumstances.
