Mapping A New World: Places of Conflict and Colonization in Seventeenth-Century New England

Two one-week workshops for seventy-two school teachers on cultural interactions and conflict in seventeenth-century New England.

The Norman B. Leventhal Map Center at the Boston Public Library proposes a 2017 Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshop for grades 3-12 teachers focused on the early colonial period in New England (1600-1700), with an emphasis on the role of geography and place. Participants will engage with maps and other primary sources, explore the colonial New England landscape and learn from scholars at a variety of historic sites, universities, and archival collections. These materials and places illuminate how English settlers and multifaceted Native communities viewed the New England region in different ways and with different perspectives.
