In this special talk, “Putting Down Our Weapons When We Talk About History: Using Primary Source Documents to Teach Multiple Perspectives on Burma’s Past”, Dr. Rosalie Metro will summarize the chapter she co-authored with Aung Khine in the recent volume edited by Mary Wong, Teaching for Peace and Social Justice in Myanmar: Identity, Agency, and Critical Pedagogy  (Bloomsbury, 2022). She will describe strategies that she and Saya Aung Khine have used in teacher trainings and classrooms. In particular, Dr. Metro will explain how applied theater can help students and teachers consider history in new ways leading toward national reconciliation.

The talk will be held in person at the Subaltern room, basement floor of the operations building of the Faculty of Social Sciences, or can be joined by zoom here.
