Members of the Microhistory Network are kindly invited by Professor Andrew S. Bergerson to take part in the following interesting project of a microhistorical character:
In the Fall of 2014, a collaborative teaching experiment will take place. Faculty at universities in various countries will try to teach a course using a common website, and a common format (course description). Each instructor is responsible for their students, but the students engage with each other on the subject using virtual technologies. Most of the work is asynchronous; some of it will be in real time. There are already colleagues interested in the project from universities in Austria, France, Germany, Taiwan, and the US. Students/faculty in any discipline in the social sciences or the humanities may participate. The only prerequisite is that students and faculty must be able to read German.
