Content Deepening Courses

This course has moved from its original dates and will be offered June 26-28, 2020. 

CSET is prioritizing the health and safety of its participants and we are following all directives given by Stanford University as well as local and national governments.  

Given the uncertain nature of COVID-19 as well as new and envolving directives on community gatherings, we are considering options for how we will present this course--either in-person or virtually.  Please check this page for updates--registrants will receive a direct email.


Slavery in Historical and Contemporary Contexts

Although it has morphed over time, slavery persists both as a method of economic exploitation and a relationship of domination around the world today.  In this workshop, participants will consider the challenges of defining slavery and consider its social, moral, and politcal reconceptualization over time. The workshop will focus on different ideologies, practices, and systems of slavery throughout history and across cultures and will examine the legacy and impact of economic exploitation around the globe.  Finally, participants will consider how to engage students practically in combating trafficking in their local communities.


Pedagogical focus:  Using Alternative Artifacts

In this workshop, participants will learn how to infuse alternative artifacts and oral histories into their classrooms.  These methods, when uncovered, empower students to participate in the preservation of history.


Two hours of post workshop pedagogical follow-up is required to earn CEU credits for this course.


Please review CSET's cancellation policy.
