Workshop on Unique Leadership Narratives & Diversity in the Classroom

The Committee on Community Colleges for the Organization of American Historians is hosting a teaching-oriented workshop for the 2016 OAH meeting in Providence, Rhode Island (April 7-10). The theme for the meeting is "On Leadership." Because community college students come from increasingly diverse backgrounds, we hope to highlight non-traditional historical leaders that will inspire our students.

Do you have a creative lesson/unit that focuses on one or more of these unconventional leaders?

Areas could include, but are not limited to: Hispanics, African Americans, Jewish Americans, Asian Americans, the LGBT community, Arab Americans, labor organizers, or advocates for the disabled.

Our panel will include 3-4 presenters with approximately 45 minutes each, Q&A, and a lunch.

We are accepting proposals for papers until September 18, 2015.

Please forward your 200 to 300-word proposal and CV to: Theresa.jach@hccs.edu
