Over the past two weeks, our readings and discussions have been focused on establishing a baseline for understanding diversity. In this module, weâ€™ll begin our tour through the four lenses, beginning with history. As we dive into the four lenses, keep in mind that each lens is framed as a way of seeing the issue and is not necessarily tied to the associated discipline. So, looking through the historical lens isnâ€™t just about History Channel documentariesâ€”itâ€™s also about how you use the lens to understand the past and present. As you write your initial post, answer the following questions:
- In what ways does looking through the history lens enhance your understanding of diversity?
- Consider a current event in the news that has a historical counterpart. How does looking through the history lens influence how you perceive both the current and historical events? Please share a news link to your events.
- How does analyzing the relationship between history, culture, and diversity have an influence on your discipline of study or chosen profession?
Respond to at least two of your classmates. Compare and contrast your answers to further everyoneâ€™s understanding of diversity and the lens of history.
Make sure you support your response with the readings from this module, and any additional resources if needed.
