A three-week school teacher summer institute for twenty-four participants on Winston Churchill's role in twentieth-century history, to be held in Cambridge and London, England.

This Institute, a repeat of our 2008 program, is a three-pronged approach to examining the Anglo-American relationship through the life, reflections, and experiences of Winston Churchill: a classroom experience of lectures, discussions and personal responses to the readings and films; individual research by teachers using primary documents from the Churchill Archives, Churchill College, Cambridge; and visits to major Churchill sites in Britain. Churchill was himself the product of an Anglo-American relationship: his mother was the American Jennie Jerome and his father was Lord Randolph Churchill, a son of the Duke of Marlborough. The Institute will primarily focus on Churchill's role in the major events of the twentieth century, but because he was a lifelong student of Americans and American history, his views on our country from its earliest settlers and the American Revolution to Eisenhower's role in the Suez Crisis of 1956 are pertinent to the relationship.
