A Summer 2022 Graduate-Level Professional Development Course
This course is tied to attendance at the June 7-10 William E. Hewit Educators Conference: Hidden Empires. Please visit the conference page for additional information.
Hidden empires is a central, enduring theme in world history and a critical issue in our own time. In recent years, debates over empire and neo-colonialism have burst into the American public conscience. The conclusion of the War in Afghanistan sparked controversy and debate, victims of American settler-colonialism increasingly demand equality, and new approaches to history have exposed neo-colonial exploitation across Africa, Asia, and the Americas. Led by expert Michael Ortiz—Assistant Professor of World History and Secondary Education—this graduate course (part of which includes the History Hewit Summer Institute) will provide hands-on exposure to scholarly content and pedagogical techniques centered on hidden empires in our shared global past.
This course provides an opportunity for graduate credit related to additional activities which will tie the conference to further learning. Course is letter-graded.
