Subject: Immersive Int'l Studies Summer Institute at UCLA
UCLA is pleased to announce a new 1-week intensive summer program for high school students using "Defining a Nation: India on the Eve of Independence, 1945" from the Reacting to the Past series of immersive role-playing games. Students will be able to earn 2 college credits while learning about India at the end of British colonial rule. Students will take on roles as actual or fictional people living in India in 1945, and debate how to shape a postcolonial India.

More information is available at: http://summer.ucla.edu/institutes/ImmersiveInternationalStudies
