Lessons and Legacies XII
International Conference in Holocaust Studies, Research and Teaching
Northwestern University, Evanston, IL
November 1-4, 2012
Conference organizers invite proposals for research or teaching workshops.
Each workshop is 90 minutes in duration and should have at least two facilitators.
Workshops should be designed to showcase innovative and exciting research methods or teaching strategies. Facilitators have broad latitude to design their particular workshop in a manner appropriate to the topic however audience participation is required of all workshops.
Workshop facilitators should share and stimulate discussion on inventive teaching assignments and/or classroom exercises and/or new research approaches. Workshop sessions might cover pedagogical issues related to Holocaust education; current research trends and textbooks; special student projects from various disciplines; Holocaust representations in films/art/music; Holocaust and the geography of Europe; the Holocaust in comparative perspective, and any other themes and/or methodological approaches that can help scholars who are preparing courses on the Holocaust and/or a new research project.
Workshops may also explore how the latest publications in the field or canonical texts are used in the classroom. Proven practices and experimental approaches should be shared and discussed.
Proposals should include brief descriptions of the aims of the session and the materials that will be distributed and/or discussed, along with the names, affiliations, and contact information of the workshop leaders.
Workshop proposals should be sent via email to Professor Hilary Earl (Nipissing University) firstname.lastname@example.org and the Program co-chairs Dr. Wendy Lower (Ludwig Maximilian University), Wendy.email@example.com, and Professor Alan Berger (Florida Atlantic University) firstname.lastname@example.org.
