To make the workshop as productive as possible, we ask you to do two things. First, come with an idea or ideas about what you would like to write about. (If you don’t have any at the moment, still come and get inspired!) Second, please read the following three letters or op-eds by the presenters. Each of the presenters will briefly discuss her piece, why she thinks it was published, and what are its strong points.
(1) An op-ed by Claudia Koonz, “The South African election that should sound an alarm bell for Americans,” Washington Post, December 12, 2021.
(2) A letter to the Editors by Ellen Schrecker. New York Times, June 20, 2021, Hers is the second letter.
(3) A letter by Margaret Power, “I teach my students to see the complexity of history,” Chicago Tribune, June 6, 2022.
