The frequent appearance of the Middle East and Islam in the headlines raises numerous questions and challenges for teachers in diverse disciplines. How do we engage our students in discussions around sensitive topics such as the terrorism, gender-based violence, Muslim minorities in the West, and non-Muslim minorities in Muslim societies, without slipping into the pitfalls of essentialism or Islamophobia?
Join us for a workshop to discuss these and other questions, while focusing on pedagogy and resources to use in the classroom when addressing these questions.
