Description

At ICMS 2017, CARA sponsored a panel on the topic of undergraduate teaching about diversity in the Middle Ages and teaching methods that promote inclusivity. This was an incredibly well-attended panel that elicited much conversation. That conversation is not over, and the need continues for a diverse and inclusive approach to teaching about the medieval world. This panel discussion will continue the conversation about how we can best serve all of our students in the classroom by responsibly including topics of study related to diverse populations. We will also ask how best to attract students from diverse backgrounds into courses on medieval topics, which have much to say on contemporary debates about marginalized groups and images of "the other." We will have between three and five panelists who have experience teaching to and about a diverse and inclusive classroom.
