TIME: 7:00 p.m. - 8:15 p.m. EST
FEE: Free

This webinar will focus on the enduring importance of the Indian Ocean in world history as a maritime space and theater of global trade and cultural exchange. Participants will learn how to use teaching resources about the Indian Ocean to bridge curricula based on empires and civilizations and curricula built around global eras. Focusing on actual people and on material and non-material culture – such as travelers of all kinds, goods, technologies, documents, and archaeological finds – we will examine patterns of continuity and change in a pivotal region that is as relevant today as when people first migrated out of Africa along its shores.


Especially for 4-12 educators.
