Free and open to all
More than a year after the triple disaster of March 2011, we have assembled some of the most active and insightful scholars and activists working on 3.11 from a range of disciplines and perspectives to offer their responses to the questions:
What should we be teaching about 3.11?
How can we teach it effectively?
Each presenter has selected the most relevant materials on 3.11 from their areas and contextualized them in a full syllabus. We will organize presenters into thematic panels to collectively identify key issues and resources, to share pedagogical approaches and anticipate the sorts of research that these syllabi can generate.
We will also introduce the use of different databases of 3.11 materials, including the following:
