Benchmarks of Historical Thinking Summer Institute, July 4 - 9, 2011
Following the success of our 2010 Summer Institute in Ottawa, we are very pleased to announce that we will be holding a Summer Institute for educators in Vancouver in the summer of 2011. This exciting institute will take you on an exploration of historical thinking, while examining the themes of immigration and aboriginality. As well, we will look at the broader substantive theme of cultural exchange across borders.
Plenary lectures by Dr. Peter Seixas and other distinguished guests. Off-site field trips will enhance the work conducted during the in-class portion of the institute.
Applications will be accepted until Friday, June 3rd. The number of spaces is limited, however, so please apply well before the deadline.
