Open to all K-12 educators at no cost

This free two-day teacher training workshop aims to provide area studies content and pedagogy training for up to 30 K-12 teachers for Unit 9 Sites of Encounter for 7th grade under the CA History-Social Science Framework. The workshop will give history educators an opportunity to hear lectures from scholars to gain more historical knowledge for these particular sites of encounter and receive training for designing lessons and curriculum to align with the unit under the HSS Framework. There is also an opportunity for interested teachers to submit a lesson plan after the workshop to receive a $200 stipend.

This workshop is funded by the U.S. Department of Education Title VI grant through the UCLA Center for Southeast Asian Studies and UCLA Center for Near Eastern Studies, in collaboration with the UCLA History-Geography Project, a teacher education program on campus and the UCLA office of the CA History-Social Science Project.

Postdoctoral Research in Urban Musical Practice
Paris, France
Deadline: May 31, 2019

The ERC Advanced Grant, “The Sound of Empire in 20th-c. Colonial Cultures: Rethinking History through Music” (MUSICOL), seeks three postdoctoral researchers with an interest in urban musical practices during the modern French empire. Francophone scholars from the fields of French colonial history; modern African, North African, or Southeast Asian History; the history of media (radio); musicology or historical ethnomusicology are encouraged to apply, especially those from North Africa, Francophone West Africa, Madagascar, and Vietnam.

The project is based at the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Paris, associated with its Institut d’histoire moderne et contemporaine, and directed by Jann Pasler.  The aim is to produce a robust new conceptual and historical model for studying how musical life and sound media influenced and mediated colonial life, contributing to the complex and dynamic identities of diverse populations, both colonizer and colonized.
We encourage you to participate in our events and directly support our efforts to educate students and the public about Southeast Asia. There are many ways to give. Contact us to hear about more opportunities.
