The Council of American Overseas Research Centers (CAORC) has launched an open access teaching and educational resources page! The page features teaching modules, webinars, lesson plans, and more from grantees across the different CAORC funding programs, including the Faculty Development Seminars, CAORC research fellowships, and Responsive Preservation Initiative. These resources were designed to support educators in teaching about other countries, world regions, and international social, cultural, and political issues. The page is hosted on Flip, which is an online platform for educators.
We are pleased to announce that the first 50 people to register for the conference will be reimbursed their fees–thanks to a generous grant from the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Foundation. (Funds will be distributed at the conclusion of the conference.) What’s more, during the conference we will be awarding as many as 50 additional travel grants of up to $800 each to cover attendees’ travel expenses. Be on the lookout for further communications from CCHA on this opportunity!
DEADLINE FOR PROPOSALS EXTENDED TO 8/31!
As we have all had difficulties teaching during the pandemic, we are extending the CFP deadline through the summer to allow folks ample time to relax and put their proposals together. The deadline for submissions is now Wednesday, August 31st! We hope to see all of our friends and colleagues in Cleveland, Ohio, for the conference this October 13-15 hosted by Cuyahoga Community College. The theme for this year’s conference is Truth, Justice, and the Humanities Way.

The Mellon/ACLS Community College Faculty Fellowships recognize humanities and social science faculty who teach at two-year institutions and their vital contributions to scholarship, teaching, and their communities. The awards are tailored to the circumstances of these faculty and support their wide-ranging research ambitions. Fellows may use the awards to pursue projects with a variety of outcomes, including articles, book chapters, or books; course materials; exhibitions; community or campus events; online resources; and more. This program is made possible through the generous support of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
