Bring your questions and your thoughts to this session on teaching a more inclusive environmental history to undergraduate students. This discussion will help whether you are looking for readings that bring diverse perspectives to familiar topics, or new topics that can bring the experience of minoritized groups into your courses. We’ll also discuss the challenges and joys of exploring controversial and emotional histories, and creating inclusive classrooms as brave spaces.
This event is one of several networking panels hosted by the Women’s Environmental History Network in order to celebrate, promote, and support the contributions of women and other underrepresented groups to environmental history. We are also committed to building lasting scholarly networks. This will be an informal, participant-driven conversation built around your questions and experiences in the classroom.
All are welcome to join us for lively discussion, co-moderated by Dr. Brinda Sarathy and Dr. Sarah Elkind.
