Historical Note

Sponsored by a Ford Foundation grant, the Non-Western Studies Program was established in 1959 as a cooperative venture between Mount Holyoke, Amherst and Smith Colleges and the University of Massachusetts. As one of a number of intercollegiate ventures, the aim was to extend and enrich the educational capacities of the individual institutions by combining the unique resources of each. The Nonwestern Studies Program focused specifically on an interdisciplinary examination of problems of economic and political development and restructuring in African, Middle Eastern, and Southeast Asian countries. The program lasted two years. In 1962/63, it was subsumed under Asian-African Studies.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

The Intercollegiate Courses/Seminars Records contain articles; memoranda; course descriptions, syllabi, reading lists, handouts, and examinations; glossaries of geographical terms used in courses and at lectures; and lecture series descriptions and schedules. The records pertain solely to two courses taught within the Four College joint program in Nonwestern Studies: Area Studies, Fall 1960 and Social Institutions of the Middle East, Spring 1961.
