The Survey Courses Project: Workshops in American History and Culture is back by popular demand! This program is designed to help college and university professors improve their survey courses by providing them with fresh insights and rich new content information. Sponsored by the Community College Humanities Association (CCHA)in cooperation with the White House Historical Association and the United States Capitol Historical Society, this project has been created for teachers in higher education who often find it difficult to find time to do research or take additional graduate-level coursework to improve their survey classes. This workshop provides faculty members with an intensive learning experience that will enable them to infuse new perspectives in their survey courses.
We are proud to announce that the second workshop in the SCP series, From the American Jubilee to the American Civil War: 1826-1865, will immediately improve professors’ survey courses and enhance their scholarship. The workshop will feature lively presentations by exceptional scholars, research opportunities at the Library of Congress, and site visits to key historical and culture institutions.
A sample of some of the exemplary scholars and specialists for the Survey Courses Project include:
Pamela Scott, author of Temple of Liberty: Building the Capitol for a New Nation
William Bushong, author of Inside the White House
