America and The Great War: An Interdisciplinary Seminar in Literature and History

A five-week school teacher summer seminar for sixteen participants on the United States and World War I, focused on the conflict's history and cultural impact.

This NEH Summer Seminar for School Teachers will draw on literature, history, and the visual arts to examine America's relationship to the Great War--a major turning point in both American and world history. Co-directed by a literary scholar and an historian, it will involve coordinated readings, trips to the National World War I Museum and Fort Leavenworth, an on-campus art exhibit and play, and work with original documents to provide school teachers with a rich experience of intellectual renewal and development.
