Warren Fellowship for Future Teachers
May 25, 2015 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM
Location Avrohm I. Wisenberg Multi-Purpose Learning Center
 
The Warren Fellowship for Future Teachers is a week-long program that introduces university students preparing for a career in teaching to the history and to the lessons of the Holocaust and other genocides. The Warren Fellowship, supported by The Warren Fellowship Fund, is developing a corps of educators who want to learn how to effectively teach about genocide and the Holocaust. The fellowship takes place at Holocaust Museum Houston in Houston, Texas each spring. Twenty-five pre-service teacher educators and graduate students will be selected by a faculty and Museum panel and will be designated as Warren Fellows. Once accepted to this prestigious fellowship, participants attend a six–day, expense-paid institute designed to immerse the Fellows in historical and pedagogical issues related to the Holocaust. During the week, Fellows have the opportunity to meet and work with survivors of the Holocaust. Following the program, Fellows are invited to participate in numerous educational activities and outreach opportunities, including the possibility of study at Yad Vashem in Israel. Students who plan to teach elementary, middle or secondary school or at the university level are encouraged to apply for the Warren Fellowship. This prestigious program is by application only. Application deadline is April 10, 2015. To apply, visit www.hmh.org and click the Education/Outreach tab.

“Reflections on the Centenary of the Armenian Genocide”

Location Albert and Ethel Herzstein Theater
 
In conjunction with the 100th anniversary of the Armenian genocide, Dr. Richard Hovannisian will reflect on the meaning and relevance of the genocide in personal and collective terms and assesse the advances in understanding the phenomenon of genocide in modern history. His work spans not only his professional and scholarly research, but also his personal experience of being raised by genocide survivors in California.  Hovannisian is professor emeritus of Armenian and Near Eastern History and first holder of the Armenian Educational Foundation Chair in Modern Armenian History at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), a Distinguished Chancellor’s Fellow at Chapman University and an adjunct professor of history at the University of Southern California, working with the Shoah Foundation. A native of California, he received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in history from the University of California, Berkeley, and his doctorate in history from UCLA. A member of the UCLA faculty since the 1960s, he has organized both the undergraduate and graduate programs in Armenian history and served as associate director of UCLA's Center for Near Eastern Studies from 1978 to 1995. He is a Guggenheim Fellow, as well as the founder and six-time president of the Society for Armenian Studies. Hovannisian has published 30 books and numerous scholarly articles, including five volumes on the Armenian Genocide and 13 volumes on historic Armenian cities and provinces in the Ottoman Empire. Tickets are $5 for HMH members, seniors and students and $8 for nonmembers. Seating is limited, and advance registration is requested. To RSVP online, visit www.hmh.org/RegisterEvent.aspx.
