NEH Summer Institute

2013 NEH Summer Institute for College and University Teachers

African American Struggles for Freedom and Civil Rights

July 1 to July 26, 2013


The Du Bois Institute is pleased to accept applications for the 2013 NEH Summer Institute for College Teachers, “African American Struggles for Freedom and Civil Rights,” which will occur from July 1 – July 26, 2013. The NEH Institute is part of an ongoing effort to provide for a deeper understanding of African American efforts to secure full citizenship and civil rights, and to situate that movement within the broader context of American history. During the four week-long program, teachers will engage in an intensive program of reading and discussion with leading scholars, reviewing new and recent scholarship as well as a rich array of sources – oral histories, memoirs, documentary films, music and archival sources. Participating teachers will work in small groups to revise courses they currently teach, develop plans for new courses, and/or create units on specific topics or texts.
