Funding will support three week-long residential summer seminars for teachers in 2011, and a series of three town hall meetings on the topic of "The Humane Society."

A HUMANE SOCIETY: USING THE HUMANITIES TO BRIDGE CULTURES is a two-part project. Part 1 consists of three week-long residential summer seminars, to take place in July 2011, for New Jersey's K-12 teachers: America and the Politics of the World's Religions; Narratives of Immigration: Latino/a Lives; and Race in American History and Culture: New Perspectives. They will be led by humanities scholars from the fields of history, religion, literature, and cultural studies. Part 2 will consist of a series of three town hall meetings, in northern, central, and southern New Jersey. Focusing on The Humane Society, these meetings of scholars, civic leaders, and community residents will create a forum, history-based, for informed, civil discussion aimed at understanding the possibilities for greater cooperation among our myriad communities -- both here in America and across the globe.
