Upcoming Outreach Events

In 2003, together with NYU’s Steinhardt School of Education, the Kevorkian Center at NYU began the Saturday Seminars for Teachers which take place throughout the academic year. The seminars feature lectures by the most respected scholars in our field with occasional pedagogy workshops designed by the NYU School of Education. Whenever possible, we work with cultural organizations in the NY area such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and National Video Resources to coordinate special pedagogy sessions or field trips so the teachers become aware of other educational resources in the NY area. Past seminar topics have included: Social Movements, The Politics of Water, Teaching about Islam, The Ottoman Empire, The Arabic Language, Palestine through the Eyes of its Youth, The Multilayered Lives of Muslim Women, and many more.  For a listing of past seminars, see our Seminars Archive.
