A three-week institute for thirty school teachers on the history and cultures of southern Appalachia.

This proposal is for a three-week institute in July of 2011, The Power of Place: Land and Peoples in Appalachia. The institute will be held with thirty educators from across the country from July 9 to July 29 at the University of North Carolina Asheville. Power of Place will use insights from the study of environmental history to examine the role of landscape in the shaping of culture and history, with the Southern Appalachians as a case study. The content will be the complex history and cultures of the Southern Appalachians. The method will employ strategies from environmental history to tell the story of the region from a fresh and compelling perspective.
