Terrorism and Transatlantic Relations

April 20, 4:30-7:30

Johnson Hall 022, UW Campus (Seattle)

This 3-hour workshop for teachers and educators will explore how terrorism has influenced American foreign policy and specifically, how the US cooperates with European countries and the European Union on matters of security. David Armitage, the US State Department Senior European Union Analyst and Visiting Research Fellow at the National Defense University Institute for National Strategic Studies, will provide an insider's perspective to transatlantic cooperation and the variables that influence the development of US Foreign Policy. Attendees will receive a copy of the CHOICES curriculum "U.S. Role in the World: Four Futures & Online Ballot," A Teaching Resource on U.S. Foreign Policy that includes a module on Protecting the U.S. Homeland, as well as 3 clock hours.

Who's Got it Better? Women in Europe, or Women in the US?

April 26, 4:30-7:30

Husky Union Building Room 209B

Each year, International Women's Day is celebrated to commemorate the struggle to improve women's lives. As developed economies, countries in North America and Europe have made great strides in the areas of emancipation, employment, and family life. While those countries have all made progress in refining women's rights, they have often followed different paths in pursuit of those goals. Comparing the similarities and differences between them provides a starting point for thinking about what gender equality means and an opportunity to encourage critical thinking in the classroom. This workshop for teachers and educators will be presented in a format to identify similarities and differences from issues ranging from reproductive rights to equal employment on both continents. A group of working women from both sides of the Atlantic will participate in a panel discussion to share their personal experiences. Teachers attending will receive 3 clock hours as well as teaching resources.

Parking, clock hours, materials, and box meals will be provided.
