In this workshop, participants will gain access to resources on teaching about cultural interactions as a topic of study. Using examples from the arts, technology and trade, we will explore primary sources that illustrate how to teach about these interactions through documents, objects, and artworks that represent modes of interaction. They will explore the story of classical knowledge and its transfer to Europe, as well as material culture such as foods and fabrics that moved across the eras to become global consumer products. Finally, we will discuss frameworks for teaching about the world that put the "global" into world history.
