A National Endowment for the Humanities

Landmarks in American History and Culture Workshop for Community College Faculty

Workshop 1: July 12 - 18, 2009
Workshop 2: July 19 - 25, 2009

The workshop is a collaboration between the Boston College Political Science Department and the Massachusetts Historical Society. Participants will be housed at Boston College but much of the day will be spent at the different Adams-related landmarks in the greater Boston area. In addition to an intensive exploration of the National Park Service site in Quincy, participants will also engage in hands-on research activities at the Massachusetts Historical Society which houses the Adams Papers; the Massachusetts Archives, which houses the Massachusetts Constitution and documents relating to its ratification; and the Boston Public Library, which houses the library that John Adams collected.

Both full-time and adjunct faculty for any discipline may apply. Participants will receive a $750 stipend to help cover travel expenses, books, food and lodging.  Additional travel supplements are available on a case-by-case basis.
