South Asia Institute and Hemispheres Host Four-Day Workshop June 7-10, 2005
Posted: June 1, 2005
Join Hemispheres for a four-day workshop exploring the relationship of continuity and change from the ancient period to the modern era. Help your students to comprehend the transition from ancient to contemporary world cultures by addressing how cultural beliefs and values adapt to, modify, and transcend shifting historical eras, political powers, and global systems. We can enhance our understanding of contemporary traditions by studying their origins, by finding relics of the past in modern cultures. Ancient cultures contributed to major intellectual developments within societies and to the evolution of global processes. It is through our increasing understanding of human accomplishment throughout history that we can find the relationship between antiquity and current-day societies. This workshop is a collaborative effort of: Teresa Lozano Long Institute of Latin American Studies, Center for Middle Eastern Studies, Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies, South Asia Institute, Center for East Asian Studies, and the Center for International Business Education and Research at the University of Texas at Austin.
