Jointly with departments of the Central European University (CEU), CRC organizes one-week course design sessions in Budapest for university teachers during which they can access human and material resources of the CEU, work in the library, consult with colleagues, purchase books, and participate in round-table discussions/workshops on course development issues.

This CRC workshop will be structured around the extensive Visual History Archive of the USC Shoah Foundation, which contains interviews with 52,000 people: 

The CEU Library has recently been given access to this remarkable resource, and the CRC workshop will explore ways in which this database can be useful in designing university courses. Participants will be able to consult with CEU faculty in Jewish Studies and Gender Studies. During the session they will also have the opportunity to use the Visual History Archive. University teachers of history, sociology, anthropology and gender studies are encouraged to apply. 
NOTE: Applicants are requested to submit an 800-word statement of intention on how they are planning to use the Visual History Archive in their teaching.
