This workshop will introduce educators to THNOC’s new exhibition Spanish New Orleans and the Caribbean / La Nueva Orleans y el Caribe españoles. Under Spanish rule (1762–1803), the city experienced natural disaster, diplomatic tensions, and demographic transformation. Despite numerous challenges, Spanish New Orleans morphed from a poorly managed outpost on the edge of an empire to a highly urbanized colonial capital—one enriched by the racial and cultural diversity for which it is celebrated today.

We’ll explore key concepts from our resource guide, provide a tour of the exhibition, and share classroom activities that engage students with Google Earth, geography, and building a visual timeline.
