The University of Northern Colorado, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Humanities, is offering a 4-week intensive Graduate level Summer Seminar for K-12 teachers in Berlin, Germany and Prague, Czech Republic. The peaceful revolutions and fall of communism are still considered to be among the most important events of the twentieth century. The Seminar “East-Central Europe, 1989: The History and Philosophy of the Peaceful Revolutions” is open to teachers of all disciplines.
The Seminar takes place from June 23-July 20, 2013 in Berlin and Prague, two key cities which were at the very center of political opposition movements under communism and developments that led to the fall of communism in the region. Additional activities including a day trip to nearby Leipzig, museum and city tours, and guest lecturers including dissidents and topic scholars round out the seminar.
Completed applications should be postmarked no later than March 4, 2013. A total of 16 applicants, including two graduate students, from across the United States will be selected to participate.
