A four-week summer institute in India for twenty-four college and university teachers to engage in on-site, interdisciplinary study of India's history and culture.

The Community College Humanities Association (CCHA) proposes a four-week, summer institute to be held in Shimla and New Delhi, India, 7 July-1 August 2008. Beverly Blois (Northern Virginia Community College) and Daniel Ehnbom (University of Virginia) will serve as project co-directors, and David A. Berry, executive director of CCHA, will serve as project manager. This project will allow twenty-four humanities faculty from two- and four-year colleges and universities to study current scholarship of India's cultural and historical development with some of the foremost Indian and American scholars in humanities fields such as history, art history, literature, religion and philosophy. The institute locations, at the Shimla conference facility in Northern India and at Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi, will facilitate first-hand study of the cultural and historical monuments of India.
