How do we continue to engage students with the early modern and pre-modern Hispanic world in innovative ways? How can we make these texts more accessible to today’s learners whilst also retaining the essential differences of another culture and another era? These are some of the questions that scholars, in collaboration with students, will explore in this interdisciplinary workshop that aims to rethink approaches and pedagogical methods to open up these texts and topics to higher education students. The workshop will include short presentations on all aspects of pedagogy and strategies for teaching, learning, and assessment that encourage learners to engage with key works using a variety of means, including visual and digital media. The purpose of the presentations is to initiate interdisciplinary conversations that might help participants to develop their own teaching practice. It will also feature keynote speaker Tara Munroe, Creative Director of Opal22 Arts and EdutainmentLink opens in a new window (Leicester), who will talk about her exhibition 'CASTA - The Origins of Caste' Link opens in a new windowat the Leicester Museum & Art Gallery.
