This K-12 teacher workshop will explore the diversity of the Latin American experience by looking at the impact of Jewish immigrants on the social, economic, political, and especially, the intellectual and cultural life of Latin America. Participants in this workshop will receive resources and lesson ideas for working into their classroom to address the following issues:

  • Understand the role of Jews in the formation of Latin American countries, acknowledging their presence and participation in the very enterprise of colonization.
  • Recognize the connections established by Latin American Jewish authors between a Jewish past of expulsion and Inquisition and a Latin American present of immigration and military dictatorships.
  • Understand how Jewish cultural production is woven into the fabric of national culture in Latin America

Registration is $25.

ONLINE REGISTRATION IS CLOSED. ONSITE REGISTRATION BEGINS AT 9:30 AM AT 100 JONES HALL.
