Two one-week workshops for fifty community college teachers on the history and significance of the Alamo.

The Community College Humanities Association will sponsor two one-week workshops for 50 community college faculty at the Alamo, a historic site, symbolic of personal and political independence, courage, self-sacrifice, and a monument to both the Texas Revolution and American individualism of the mid-nineteeth century. Each seven-day workshop (June 17-23 and June 24-30, 2007) will feature five prominent scholars who will address the topics of Spanish colonial expansionism and Mexican settlement; issues of mid-19th century American history including slavery, Manifest Destiny, the role of women on the frontier, the Texas Revolution, and the historical significance of architectural preservation. Participants will be able to engage in systematic guided research using sources archived in the DRT Alamo Library, the Center for American History and the Institute of Texan Cultures as they develop curriculum or teaching materials for infusion into new or existing courses.
