Invited Conference Keynote: "The Geography of Mobility: Teaching History, Geography, and Civil Rights" (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: Invited Conference Keynote: "The Geography of Mobility: Teaching History, Geography, and Civil Rights"
Author: Alderman, Derek H.
Abstract: Dr. Alderman recently co-directed a National Endowment for Humanities summer institute hosted by the University of Tennessee and the Tennessee Geographic Alliance. In July of this year, eighteen K-12 educators from across the country came to Knoxville to examine the central role of migration, transportation, travel and tourism in structural racism and the historical and contemporary fight for African American freedom and self-determination. The workshop featured guest lectures and hands-on lessons from experts on geographic mobility, race and racism, Black geographies, oral history, digital mapping, and educators participated in local and state-wide field trips. Dr. Alderman highlights the institute’s foundational ideas and innovations, the value of creating spaces of dialogue and care for teachers during these tough times, and the need to create greater synergies between teaching history, geography, and civil rights.
