Understanding Slavery


 

"How could slavery have survived so long in American history? Our challenge with this site was to put American slavery into global context, and to explore the ways that it permeated American social and economic institutions. The result: a hybrid role play/interactive reference site that challenges the student to stop a slave auction, and then lets them explore the perspectives of the many people who had a stake in the institution."

Where in the world and What in the world is Money?


 

"So you think you know what money is? It's those little round coins and paper bills printed by the government with someone's face on one side, right? What if money isn't a coin or a banknote or even a credit card? They may be common now. But not everyone in the world has used these forms of money for very long at all. Throughout history and around the globe, many different things have served as money. Play this game to find out just what money has been. You'll need to keep your wits about you if you want to get home. . . ."

Picturing Women


 

"The history of the representation of women is one that often pictures partial and full nudity along with other explicit depictions. Some contemporary artists have chosen to respond to such conventions in similarly explicit ways. This Web site reflects both historical conventions and contemporary responses. These images can be challenging for younger viewers in particular, but each one offers the opportunity for questioning, discussing, and learning."
