Prechter Lab, 2202 Marsal Family School of Education

The World History & Literature Initiative (WHaLI) is a unique collaboration between the University of Michigan International Institute’s Title VI National Resource Centers and the Marsal Family School of Education designed to deepen teachers’ understanding of world history, literature, and the ways in which their students learn new historical ideas.

This year's event, on June 17 and 18 from 9 am to 3 pm, will focus on the challenges of teaching complicated and contested historical narratives in our current global context. We will explore the contested nature of histories worldwide, across case studies set in Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, East Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East and North Africa.
