Emily Dickinson: Person, Poetry, and Place

A Faculty Humanities Workshop series for twenty-four local K-12 teachers on the life and poetry of Emily Dickinson.

The Emily Dickinson Museum will sponsor "Emily Dickinson: Person, Poetry, and Place" in 2007-2008. This Faculty Humanities Workshop will include a one-week summer session (offered twice to accommodate a total of 24-K-12 teachers) and three one-day sessions on Saturdays in the 2007-2008 academic year. The Workshop will examine Emily Dickinson's (person) biography, her poetry, and her place (her home, her town of Amherst, and the physical, social, and cultural environment of western Massachusetts). The Workshop is designed for teachers from western Massachusetts, especially the Amherst-Pelham Regional School District, where the Museum is located. Five organizations are collaborating with the Museum on this project.
