Dr. Zara Anishanslin, University of Delaware

Dr. Zara Anishanslin is Assistant Professor of History and Art History at University of Delaware. As an historian who specializes in working with “things,” Dr. Anishanslin will offer a workshop on integrating material culture research and archival methods and discoveries into the humanities classroom and beyond. Her monograph, Portrait of a Woman in Silk: Hidden Histories of the British Atlantic World, is just approaching its first anniversary, and she is an accomplished director of public history projects and museum exhibits.

The series‘ general scope:

How do we teach? How would we like to teach? How were we taught? How do others teach? How could we teach differently? And whom do we teach – and to what ends? As lecturers in the Humanities, these questions are found endlessly fascinating, and best explored in lively discussion.

The Humanities Pedagogy Workshop is a reading and discussion forum for regular discussion of practices, books and articles on teaching in higher education, with the aim of re-evaluating the roles as educators, along with their objectives and methodology.

The organizers want to establish a dialogue on educational practices and what could be termed a “teaching philosophy”, a space in which they can explore topics related to teaching and learning in higher education, debate the implications of particular readings on their practice, and think about teaching and learning in new ways.
