The Life, Works, and Legacy of Paul Laurence Dunbar: Interdisciplinary Curriculum Development

A one-year curricular planning grant to revise courses in computer science, sociology, history, and music using the life and work of Paul Laurence Dunbar to examine significant themes in American history and culture.

The University of Dayton and its community partners seek support from NEH to develop new curriculum and place-based experiential learning opportunities for undergraduate students from all backgrounds around the theme of Paul Laurence Dunbar, the Dayton native and preeminent African American writer.

These include courses for majors in computer science and sociology that will incorporate significant humanities subject material, pedagogy, and habits of inquiry, as well as humanities courses that will integrate computer science and sociology.
