This summer institute introduces high school educators to important content about Latin America’s significance in world history. The program explores innovative sources and approaches that scholars are using to engage students in learning about the region and its integration into a larger world system. The institute will largely focus on three eras: Latin America before the Europeans, Latin America’s integration into the world economy and the struggle for democracy and human rights.
