En este juego de rol, que solamente se ofrecerá como un curso presencial, los alumnos interpretarán figuras históricas en el contexto del juicio de Anne Hutchinson y competirán para conseguir sus objetivos individuales a través de la negociación y el debate.
In the Reacting to the Past series of role-playing games, students assume the identities of historical figures in a specific historical moment, and compete to achieve their assigned objectives in a fluid, dynamic class environment. This 12 hour, 6 session workshop, which will meet every two weeks, will recreate one of the most tumultuous and significant episodes in early American history.
The Trial of Anne Hutchinson: Liberty, Law, and Intolerance in Puritan New England illustrates the struggle between the followers and allies of John Winthrop, Governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony, and those of Anne Hutchinson, a strong-willed and brilliant religious dissenter. The game unfolds amidst a controversy that pushed Massachusetts to the brink of collapse and spurred a larger historical process that led to religious freedom and the modern concept of separation of church and state.
This course will only be offered in person.
This course is designed for learners with an Advanced or Proficiency level of English.
