How can we, as educators, help students openly and critically discuss difficult topics such as racism, white supremacy, antisemitism, and xenophobia in classrooms? This workshop will engage educators in thinking about how to support themselves and their students through such difficult conversations.

The workshop is offered in conjunction with “The 'Great Replacement': Conspiracy Theories and Far-right Mass Violence in the Trump Era Panel Discussion” that will take place earlier the same day. Educators are invited to attend both the talk and the workshop, but one need not attend the panel discussion to also attend the workshop. 

Date: Wednesday, November 13, 2019

  • Panel Discussion: 4:00-5:30 pm
  • Educator Workshop: 6:00-8:00 pm 

Location: 680 Social Sciences Building 
Both the talk and the workshop are free to attend.

The educator workshop will be run simultaneously as both an in-person workshop and a Webinar. Please indicate your choice below. The link to the Webinar will be emailed the day of the workshop to registered attendees.
