Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Long referred to as "Democracy's Colleges," community colleges educate almost 50 percent of American undergraduates. At a socio-historical moment rife with tensions that threaten understanding, they bring students of diverse backgrounds and experiences together in the study of significant humanities questions. The proposed panel collates insights from six years of intensive Holocaust, genocide, and human rights education at Queensborough Community College, CUNY to offer four approaches - Arts-Based, Social Justice, Textual, and Outcomes-Based - to designing innovative, integrative, and differentiated pedagogies for today╒s imperatives and college students. Panelists include most of the contributors to Humanistic Pedagogy Across the Disciplines: Approaches to Mass Atrocity Education in the Community College Context, a volume edited by Amy E. Traver and Dan Leshem and slated for publication by Palgrave Macmillan in winter 2018.
