Environmental Change and Relocation (Global History Series)
"Environmental Change and Relocation" is the final of three Saturday sessions for teachers exploring the Movement of People in the contemporary world. This session will include a lecture exploring how farmers and herders in northwest China are creating strategies for survival amidst government relocation policies. This lecture will add complexity to the understanding of both government policy and peasant response. A model lesson, which exploring perspective -- why people migrated to California during the Great Depression -- will be presented. All teachers are invited to attend, however, 4th and 11th grade teachers are particularly encouraged to register.
The event is sponsored by the Institute of East Asian Studies at UC Berkeley.
