Prof. Terrance Dean awarded Pedagogy and Teaching Fellowship
The HistoryMakers, the nation’s largest African American video oral history archive, has awarded its 2021 Faculty Innovations in Pedagogy and Teaching Fellowship to Denison University Assistant Professor Terrance Dean.
Dean’s course will use The HistoryMakers Digital Archive to critically examine the relationship between Black women and the Black Church. It will make use of practical and theoretical frameworks in womanist ethics, Black religious thought, gender and sexuality, and Black Church studies to uncover the experiences, leadership, power, and contributions of Black women to the church from slavery to present day.
Now in its second year, The HistoryMakers Faculty Innovations in Pedagogy and Teaching Fellowship is designed to foster classroom innovation and teaching, and to diversify curricula while furthering student learning and research skills during the upcoming academic year. Award recipients will receive a $7,500 award and the opportunity to demonstrate how faculty can creatively incorporate The HistoryMakers Digital Archive into a semester course and syllabus.
