Race, Racism, and Teaching the Middle Ages
July 20 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDTFree
This event was recorded and is available here on the MAA website.
“In the wake of recent events and ongoing racially motivated violence, there have been many institutional responses to raise awareness of race and racism in the U.S. and beyond. This is one such response. Since many of us are educators who will return to the classroom in one form or another in the coming year, this webinar is focused on pedagogy and concrete strategies for teaching race and racism in their medieval forms and as they appear in medieval studies. Our four speakers will discuss what they do in the classroom and library to approach this complex topic with the goal of engendering ideas and texts that can be put in place as soon as this fall.
