Art and Composite Culture in South Asian History

A one-week institute for 30 teachers to study South Asian history and culture through visual art.

We are requesting funding for a one week Summer Institute on Art and Composite Culture in South Asian History to help middle and high school teachers use the visual arts of South Asia to enhance their teaching of world history curriculum, enabling a pluralistic understanding of the origins and development of India's many cultures and peoples. The Summer Institute will be held from July 12-16, 2021 at the University of San Diego, bringing together a cross-section of thirty history-social science teachers from across the country who are interested in using art as a form of object-oriented inquiry to teach major themes in South Asian history. By the end of the Summer Institute, teachers will have tools in place to develop a curricular unit utilizing digital materials.
