Body and Identity: an exploration of disability and sexuality across disciplines: Summer Institute for k-12 Educators

Workshop | June 26 – 28, 2019 every day | 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. | UC Berkeley Extension (Golden Bear Center), Suite 510 Conference Room

 ORIAS (Office of Resources for International and Area Studies)

Body & Identity will explore disability and sexuality in World History, Art, Literature, and other disciplines. Participants will learn about current research and scholarship in these areas, as well as developing a deeper understanding of the diverse and changing experiences, roles, and identities of people in the disability and LGBT communities. This exploration will also generate new ways to think and teach about diverse topics – from portraiture, to gender roles, to industrialization.
Teachers who wish to receive professional development credit will be expected to attend an extended afternoon session, during which they will work to modify an existing classroom unit to incorporate new content. Teams of teachers are encouraged to attend and build curriculum together.

 This event is for k-12 teachers.
