Social Movements in Modern America: Labor, Civil Rights, and Feminism
NEH Summer Institute for School Teachers, July 11-31, 2010

social movements

Welcome!

Thank you for visiting us! This website will give you detailed information about our institute's content and tentative schedule, the application process, our faculty, institute housing and travel, and information about our beautiful community here in southern Indiana. Please contact Dr. Barbara Truesdell if you have any questions or need more information: 812/855-2856, barbara@indiana.edu.

Our three-week summer institute will examine the pivotal role of three major social movements in America: their history, their interrelationships, and their transformative political and cultural impact over the last century. The institute is co-sponsored by the Center on Congress and the Center for the Study of History and Memory at Indiana University Bloomington.

The "Social Movements" institute has recruited 25 teachers of social studies or a related discipline (e.g. history, government, etc.) from grades 9 through 12. Full-time teachers from public, private, or church-affiliated schools, including home-schooling parents, are eligible to apply. Full-time graduate students who intend to pursue careers in K-12 teaching are also eligible.

The application process is now complete, and we are pleased to announce our NEH summer scholars for the institute.

The National Endowment for the Humanities has designated this institute as part of its "We the People" initiative, designed to encourage and enhance the teaching, study, and understanding of American history, culture, and democratic principles.

The photos of labor, civil rights, and feminist social activism used on this website are courtesy of the Library of Congress prints and photographs collection.
