In the US, the ongoing conversation about Black Lives draws connections between our history of chattel slavery and modern racism. This summer, the ORIAS Summer Institute for Community College Instructors seeks to contextualize that national history within a broader, global context by exploring coerced labor in different guises across time and place.
How have individuals, states, companies, and other organizations expropriated the labor, skills, and reproductive capacities of people in different societies? How have unfree people and coerced workers navigated, collaborated with, and resisted these systems? And how have individual and community efforts at liberation contributed to modern ideas of citizenship, equality, and human rights? We'll explore these and other questions over three days of presentations and discussion.
This ORIAS Summer Institute is ONLY open to community college instructors across disciplines and high school teachers of AP courses. This program is designed for instructors in Humanities, Social Sciences, and Global Studies. Participation is free.
