Interactive Teaching on Ethnicity, Ethnic Discrimination and Mobilization

Victor Asal
Half Day, 1:30 PM -5:30 PM
Omni Shoreham, Senate Room

There has been a growing body of literature that has identified simulations as successful tools for teaching students about political science. This workshop will focus on several simulations and games that allow the students to be “lab rats” in their own experiments related to identity, ethnicity, oppression and conflict. The workshop will focus on providing exercises and tools educators can use to teach their students about how identity and ethnicity relate to oppression and conflict. It will focus on exercises and games that allow students to identify how their identity shapes their views and the link between ethnic discrimination and mobilization- participants will participate in the different exercises and the games.

**All Short Courses will take place on Wednesday, August 28, 2019 at the APSA 2019 Annual Meeting in  Washington, DC.**
