Slavery in Historical and Contemporary Contexts

june 26-27, 2020 | Virtual workshop

Although it has morphed over time, slavery persists both as a method of economic exploitation and a relationship of domination around the world today. In this workshop, participants will consider the challenges of defining slavery and consider its social, moral, and political reconceptualization over time. The workshop will focus on different ideologies, practices, and systems of slavery throughout history and across cultures and examine the legacy and impact of economic exploitation around the globe. Finally, participants will consider how to engage students practically in combating trafficking in their local communities.

Pedagogical focus: Using Alternative Artifacts -  In this workshop, participants will learn how to infuse alternative artifacts and oral histories into their classrooms.  These methods, when uncovered, empower students to participate in the preservation of history.
