A three-week school teacher institute for twenty-five participants to explore Dvorak's New World Symphony to understand American culture and society in the late nineteenth century.

Dvorak's American sojourn (1892-1895) acutely posed the questions: "What is America?" and "Who is an American?" Dvorak's answers, embracing African-Americans and Native Americans, were influential and controversial. His quest for America links to innumerable topics in history, literature, the visual arts, etc. The proposed institute would train teachers to use the Dvorak story to infuse the arts and humanities into classroom instruction.
