The Teach-Out will address the following questions:
Civil Rights generally:
- What does “civil rights” mean? How has the category been understood both in the past and present?
- In what way is healthcare reform a civil rights demand?
- In what way does the civil rights “frame” fail to fit healthcare policy?
- Why did the 19th-century Supreme Court declare immigration a constitutional-law-free zone?
- How are courts--including the Supreme Court--analyzing the President’s seven-country travel ban?
A Teach-Out is:
-an event – it takes place over a fixed, short period of time
-an opportunity – it is open for free participation to everyone around the world
-a community – it will be joined by a large number of diverse individuals
-a conversation – an opportunity to give and take ideas and information from people
The University of Michigan Teach-Out Series provides just-in-time community learning events for participants around the world to come together in conversation with the U-M campus community, including faculty experts. The U-M Teach-Out Series is part of our deep commitment to engage the public in exploring and understanding the problems, events, and phenomena most important to society.
Teach-Outs are short learning experiences, each focused on a specific current issue. Attendees will come together over a few days not only to learn about a subject or event but also to gain skills. Teach-Outs are open to the world and are designed to bring together individuals with wide-ranging perspectives in respectful and deep conversation. These events are an opportunity for diverse learners and a multitude of experts to come together to ask questions of one another and explore new solutions to the pressing concerns of our global community. Come, join the conversation!
