Afghanistan Resources

Homeland Afghanistan is a new, fabulous resource for classes which are studying Afghanistan. Produced by the Asia Society, it contains many links to videos and other information (map, glossary, bibliography).

Although navigating it is a little complicated, there is a very long timeline (one section focuses on Afghanistan today) and there are several themes which are explored, including:
• Geography and Destiny
• Identity and Perception
• Traditions and Modernization and
• Traces and Narratives

See also the companion webinars (free to teachers). As we pass the 10 year mark of US military involvement, I have gathered more resources on Afghanistan, including timelines and various media perspectives, which are available here.
