Session Abstract

Participants in this roundtable panel will reflect on what they see as the challenges and opportunities of teaching women’s history right now. How can we keep women’s history alive and relevant in the classroom? How do undergraduate women and men perceive the history of feminism and its relevance today, and how do we engage students in raising their sense of feminist consciousness? What are some of the particular challenges of teaching the histories of women in indigenous societies and/or societies beyond Anglophone North America?
