Ottawa, Nov. 2014. This session focuses on the reflective process built into two field schools explicitly designed to use the lens of the past as a way to understand the present and help guide the future: UVic’s I‐witness Holocaust Field School in Central Europe and its Colonial Legacies Field School in South Africa. In this workshop the current directors of these field schools present their experiences integrating various types of reflection into the field school experience (academic, personal, public, and creative performance) and help participants explore critical reflection processes for field schools in diverse contexts and settings.
