Historians of many backgrounds and professional roles are currently facing an especially fraught political moment surrounding the teaching and learning of history. This session brings together history and social studies practitioners from multiple backgrounds in schools, public history organizations, policy, and curriculum to both share their experiences and provide insights for how to navigate specific local, state, and national circumstances. By working collaboratively and in partnership across professional and institutional categories, the conversation will focus on ways to concretely support one and other amidst both the common and unique challenges faced.
