Manifest Destiny Reconsidered: The Utah Experience will enrich the curriculum of teachers nationwide by helping them develop a nuanced understanding of western expansion. Under the direction of a diverse team of national and local scholars, teachers will investigate ways religion, race, gender, and class impacted the Utah migration and challenged standard interpretations of Manifest Destiny and American citizenship. The workshop also will provide teachers with a historical framework for analyzing current conflicts over freedom of religion, equality, immigration, and federal vs. state rights.
Stay tuned for more details on November 1st!
