African-American Literature and Social History

A three-week institute for twenty-five school teachers on African-American literature and social history.

The Department of African and African American Studies and the Research Network on Racial and Ethnic Inequality at Duke University propose to conduct a three-week summer institute to be held July 8-26, 2013, on "African American Literature and Social History." The proposed summer institute will provide the opportunity for 25 secondary school teachers to study both well-known and less familiar, but significant, works in African American literature and to examine the interplay between fictional narratives and social, historical, and philosophical frames. NEH summer scholars will be encouraged to integrate literary analysis and criticism with insights drawn from research in social history using readings of African American literature with social, historical and philosophical writings relevant to the frame and context of the fictional works.
