Shreiner Presents at Recent Workshop on Afghanistan
History department chair Tammy Shreiner was one of two presenters Tuesday night at a teachers’ professional development workshop entitled Afghanistan Past and Present: Connections, Communities, Conflicts.
Sponsored by the U-M’s International Institute, the workshop provided an overview of Afghanistan’s history and current challenges, with particular attention given to the roles of geography and foreign influence in Afghan political, economic, cultural, and social transformations as well as the country’s relevance for social studies and history classrooms. The workshop was attended by middle and high school teachers in the social sciences.
Shreiner’s co-presenter at the workshop was Noah Coburn, Central Asian Studies Post-Doctoral Fellow and lecturer in anthropology at U-M.
