Our Shared Past in the Mediterranean

The Ali Vural Ak Center for Global Islamic Studies, with a grant from the British Council’s and Social Science Research Council’s “Our Shared Past” initiative, has developed a set of six teaching modules entitled "Our Shared Past in the Mediterranean: A World History Curriculum Project for Educators".

The project was led by Dr. Peter Mandaville, Co-Director of the Ali Vural Ak Center, with a team of distinguished Mediterranean historians and scholars of pedagogy from the U.S., Europe, Turkey, and North Africa, and was written by experienced world history curriculum developers. The set of six interdisciplinary teaching modules spans the geography and history of the Mediterranean in the context of world history from ancient times to the present.
