Inclusive Excellence


The Office of Diversity Affairs and the Teaching and Learning Initiative seek your presence on Wednesday, March 29th from 4:15-5:15pm in Parmer Cinema, where Dr. Susanna Caroselli will deliver an Inclusive Excellence Lecture titled “Teaching the Other.

A brief description follows:

The phrase “Teaching the Other” may be interpreted as teaching about the Other, teaching to the Other, or teaching the process of “Othering.” As a contributor to the book Jews in Medieval England: Teaching Representations of the “Other”(Palgrave-Macmillan, forthcoming), Susanna Caroselli undertook all three in her discussion of the persecution of Jews in/by visual imagery and the pedagogy needed to teach such a sensitive subject. Using images from medieval manuscripts, she will present strategies for learning and teaching how a visual imagery of oppression develops.

Light Refreshments will be served.

We look forward to seeing you all there.

“You have a heart for cultivating change that will better our world. There is no better place to start than at ASP in Washington, D.C. Being a catalyst of change starts the moment you meet your roommates. It is planted in your words as you tutor an at-risk child and becomes rooted in the active role you play in your internship. Guided by mentorship, community engagement and fellowship with others, this is change that will bear the best fruit.” –American Studies Program website
