Facing History and Ourselves recently announced a free online workshop for teachers. This workshop is broken into five online meetings from April 24th through the 28th.
Here’s how Facing History and Ourselves describes the workshop:
Educators will examine the impact of colonialism, nationalism, and imperialism in the early 20th century, the development of racial ideologies, the roles of perpetrators, bystanders, and upstanders, as well as the enduring power of a nation’s collective memory. The memories of this atrocity and the many legacies of this history are alive today and continue to have a profound impact in many Asian societies.
All session content will be open throughout the workshop but moderated discussions, led by a history expert, will take place on the following days:
- April 24 – Session 1: Imperialism and Nation Building
- April 25 – Session 2: Crimes of War
- April 26 – Session 3: The Nanjing Safety Zone
- April 27 – Session 4: Justice and Judgment
- April 28 – Session 5: Legacy and Memory
