Two one-week workshops for fifty community college faculty members on landmarks in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

CCHA requests funding for NEH Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshops on the topic, "Plymouth, Massachusetts: Landmark of Pilgrims and Wampanoag Indians," on site in Plymouth, Massachusetts, July 11-17 and July 18-24, 2010. Plymouth is the landmark site for the Pilgrim settlement, the interaction with the Wampanoag Indians, and the enduring political, religious, literary and arts traditions of early American and colonial history. Recent scholarship that emphasizes careful historical interpretation will be emphasized by four major scholars, Dr. Peter J. Gomes, Dr. Kathleen Bragdon, Dr. James Weiss, and Jonathan Leo Fairbanks. The project has the support of three Plymouth, Massachusetts institutions: Plimoth Plantation, Pilgrim Hall Museum, and the General Society of Mayflower Descendants. Participants will return to their campuses with new curriculum units of study and research projects for future scholarship.
