Professor > Unsilence Injustice:
Teaching About Hidden Violence & Oppression
In this new five-day institute, starting Summer 2020, we will explore frameworks and pedagogies for teaching about atrocity, human suffering, and resilience.
Drawing from hidden narratives of the Holocaust and genocide, the eugenics movement, and contemporary oppression, we will ask essential questions about social justice education and human rights advocacy.
Why do some histories of atrocity become marginalized and even erased from our collective memory?
How do institutional silencing, cultural silencing, and personal silencing stand in the way of learning, empathy, and collective healing?
And how can we use storytelling, the arts, and serious games to support young learners to make meaningful connections between systemic violence and their own lives?
