The University of Wisconsin-Madison's Center for European Studies and Global Studies offered a K-12 Teacher Workshop this summer (June 20-24, 2011), held at the Concourse Hotel in Madison, WI. The workshop is entitled Europe and the Developing World.

This workshop explores the history of Europe's complex relationship with the developing world from colonialism, through the uncertainties of the immediate post-colonial period to current issues that unite as well as separate the nations of Europe from the countries of the developing world. To what extent are contemporary issues in the developing world still shaped by its colonial past, and to what extent are current European policies and opinions still shaped by the era of colonialism? And what impact has the recent economic crisis had upon current development aid, development policy and long term development goals?

Csanád Siklós (Outreach Coordinator, Center for European Studies) and Mark Lilleleht (Outreach Coordinator, Global Studies) are the co-conveners of the workshop. Questions about the program can be addressed to either.
