Northwestern University’s premier showcase for experiments in teaching and learning

Featured Speakers

Dr. Marcia Chatelain

Georgetown University

Marcia Chatelain, PhD, is Associate Professor of History and African American Studies at Georgetown University. “In addition to being a scholar, I enjoy speaking to and teaching communities about a variety of topics, especially how to talk about race and social justice,” she writes. Her social media response to events in 2014 in Ferguson, Missouri led to the #FergusonSyllabus, a multi-disciplinary and crowdsourced list of resources, for which she earned a spot on The Chronicle of Higher Education’s 2016 Influence List.
