Teaching Race: A Roundtable

Posted By Anna Wainwright, Saturday, May 20, 2017
Updated: Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Organizers: Alison Frazier, Anna Wainwright

This roundtable explores how we early modernists engage race in our classrooms. We seek five-six participants, each willing to share an innovative lesson plan: what sources do you use, what activities and projects have you found successful for introducing students of different race-, class-, and gender-positions to the history, philosophy, art, and literature of the early modern world? More generally, this panel aims to encourage discussion about public engagement: what does it mean to teach Renaissance constructions of race in this global moment, so fraught with racial violence? How do we at once acknowledge the historiographical traditions of our disciplines, as we surpass the limits of those traditions to fashion inclusive and "intersectional" historiographies of the Renaissance?

Contact Anna Wainwright (NYU) with your titled abstract of not more than 150 words.
