Reviews:

“Magnificent! This primer is at once a how-to manual for designing a stimulating history course, a guide to navigating higher-ed bureaucracy, an invitation to reflect on your own pedagogical practice, and an outstanding annotated reading list. In concise, topical chapters and lucid prose, Merry E. Wiesner-Hanks and Urmi Engineer Willoughby offer foundational perspectives on two major fields, explore an intersection between them that’s at the cutting edge of scholarship, and still manage to offer practical advice for engaged teaching, especially for lower-division college students. It’s a remarkable accomplishment and a lively read.”

—Laura J. Mitchell, University of California, Irvine

 

“Geared to the novice instructor but useful for experienced teachers who are revamping their courses, this primer is an informative and excellent guide. Merry E. Wiesner-Hanks and Urmi Engineer Willoughby’s book should appeal to teachers of various persuasions in different kinds of institutions—no mean feat!”

—Eileen Boris, coeditor of The Practice of U.S. Women’s History: Narratives, Intersections, and Dialogues


Description:

A Primer for Teaching Women, Gender, and Sexuality in World History is a guide for college and high school teachers who are teaching women, gender, and sexuality in history for the first time, for experienced teachers who want to reinvigorate their courses, for those who are training future teachers to prepare their own syllabi, and for teachers who want to incorporate these issues into their world history classes. Merry E. Wiesner-Hanks and Urmi Engineer Willoughby present possible course topics, themes, concepts, and approaches while offering practical advice on materials and strategies helpful for teaching courses from a global perspective in today’s teaching environment for today’s students. In their discussions of pedagogy, syllabus organization, fostering students’ historical empathy, and connecting students with their community, Wiesner-Hanks and Willoughby draw readers into the process of strategically designing courses that will enable students to analyze gender and sexuality in history, whether their students are new to this process or hold powerful and personal commitments to the issues it raises.
