OER Project Presents: Beyond the Scramble for Africa

What is the right way to discuss imperialism? Is there a right way to discuss imperialism? In this session, Bram Hubbell will discuss how to prioritize the voices of colonized peoples. Participants will explore imperialism in a global context while elevating the diverse experiences and responses to colonialism during this period in world history. Whether you are a long-experienced teacher or new to the teaching profession, this session will help you to integrate more textual and visual primary sources into your teaching of imperialism. Additionally, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions about how they can work to audit and supplement their curricular offerings in order to ensure their classrooms are both supportive of student understanding and inclusive of a variety of sources centered on the immediate and lasting impact of imperialism.
