Summer Institute for Community College Instructors
May 29 - 30, 2020
How do we interpret narratives about mass movements in the past? And how does that understanding across the distance of time compare to the actual, complex experience of participating in such a movement?
The 2020 ORIAS Summer Institute for Community College Instructors takes a look at mass movements, past and present. In addition to considering the context, ideology, and histories of movements, the program will also delve into the tactics and messy ambiguities of these movements as they were lived and executed by people who participate(d) in them. The overall program will consider movements from around the world, through a number of lenses in Humanities and social sciences. The first day of the program will focus on past movements, whereas the second day will explore movements that are currently active in the world.
This ORIAS Summer Institute is open to community college instructors across disciplines and (space permitting) high school teachers of AP courses. This program is designed for instructors in Humanities, Social Sciences, and Global Studies. Participation is free, but space is limited.
