This virtual event will empower Wisconsin’s K-12 educators to teach on genocide and fulfill the mandates of Act 30, the new law passed by the Wisconsin legislature and Governor Evers in April 2021. It will offer participants the chance to hear presentations by top experts and acquire free book sets and other practical materials for teaching on the subject of genocide and five specific cases: the Holocaust, Cambodia, Rwanda, Argentina, and the Uyghurs in China.

The first session on Saturday, January 15, will feature talks on genocide cases in regions of the world that our UW-Madison area studies centers represent, and will feature Kathryn Mara, the Albert Markham Postdoctoral Research Fellow with the African Cultural Studies who will be workshopping a session on “Learning to Talk About and Critically Represent Genocide: A Researcher’s Reflection.”
