Marginalized Voices in World History

A Summer 2021 Graduate-Level Professional Development Course

This course is tied to attendance at the June 1-4 William E. Hewit Educators Conference: Marginalized Voices in World History. Please visit the conference page for additional information about the conference and the stipend/honorarium. 

Teaching marginalized voices is a central, enduring theme in world history and a critical issue in our own time. In recent years, there has been a campaign to integrate African-American, Indigenous, Latinx, and other marginalized voices into social science curricula. While meritorious, this movement has largely been confined to the study of America. Amid the florescence of world history at the secondary level, this course will globalize the study of marginalized voices.

This course provides an opportunity for graduate credit related to additional activities which will tie the conference to further learning. Course is letter-graded.
