Please join us for the inaugural remote, Zoom conference sponsored by H-Teach (https://networks.h-net.org/h-teach), an H-Net network for an intellectual exchange focusing on history teaching methods at all levels in diverse settings.

Our theme for this inaugural conference, “Uncharted Territories: Teaching History, Humanities, and Social Sciences in Innovative Ways,” will resonate with teachers at all levels of the educational system and especially in history and related fields in the humanities and social sciences. In an era when educators are hit with top-down models of assessment, forced to redesign courses for remote work, confined in curricular development by book bans, and under assault over public misconceptions of supposedly teaching Critical Race Theory, this conference will provide a gathering to discuss and to learn ways to chart through the challenges teachers face in the classroom including threats to academic freedom. Our participants will also present innovative new ways to teach history and solutions to topics under threat of elimination, such as slavery or the slave trade, by political bodies across the country, providing resources for faculty development.
