Expanding the Ancient World Workshop

Nomads in World History: How Human Mobility Shapes Society

Organized by the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World

This workshop will take place online. Registration is required; click through for the registration link. Zoom information will be provided via confirmation email to registered participants. Expanding the Ancient World is a series of professional development workshops and online resources for teachers. It is difficult to teach nomadic history for several reasons: many nomadic cultures did not leave textual records of their own history, nomadic settlement patterns diverge from those of "Classical Cultures" such as the ancient Greeks or Egyptians, and most students today do not have first-hand experience of traditional nomadic lifeways.
