Please post to the Listserv.  Thank you!

College faculty and administrators are invited to register for the tenth
annual “Reacting to the Past” Summer Institute at Barnard College (NY), June
10-13, 2010.

“Reacting to the Past” (RTTP) consists of elaborate games, set in the past,
in which students are assigned roles with “victory objectives” informed by
seminal texts in the history of ideas.

Participants will learn about the curriculum by engaging in intensive
two-day workshops on particular games. This year's workshop features all
three Reacting games set in Asia:

*Confucianism and the Succession Crisis of the Wanli Emperor *by Daniel K.
Gardner and Mark C. Carnes;*

*Defining a Nation: India, 1945 *by Ainslie T. Embree and Mark C. Carnes;

and a new game in development, "Korea at the Crossroads of Civilizations:
Confucianism, Westernization, and the 1894 Kabo Reforms" by John B. Duncan
and Jennifer Jung-Kim.

In addition to game sessions, participants will have discussions of a more
general character on student motivation and teaching, general education, and
the problems and possibilities of the RTTP approach.

The RTTP approach is a highly effective and engaging teaching method that
enables a better understanding of the nature of history by illuminating
contingency and individual agency as important factors in key moments of
historical change.

pecuniary considerations.
