How do we interpret narratives about mass movements in the past? And how does that understanding across the distance of time compare to the actual, complex experience of participating in such a movement?
The 2020 ORIAS Summer Institute for Community College Instructors takes a look at mass movements, past and present. In addition to considering the context, ideology, and histories of movements, the program will also delve into the tactics and messy ambiguities of these movements as they were lived and executed by people who participate(d) in them. The overall program will consider movements from around the world, through a number of lenses in Humanities and social sciences. The first two sessions of the program will focus on past movements, whereas sessions three and four will explore movements that are currently active in the world. Registrants are strongly encouraged to attend all four sessions, since daily group discussions will draw on information from previous talks.
This ORIAS Summer Institute is ONLY open to community college instructors across disciplines, high school teachers of AP courses, and students in the UC Berkeley BE3 Social Studies credential program. This program is designed for instructors in Humanities, Social Sciences, and Global Studies. Participation is free.
