Nature Transformed: Imagination and the North American Landscape, the National Humanities Center's summer institute for high school history teachers scheduled to run from June 25 to July 14, 2000, at the Center in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.
Nature Transformed will explore the relationship between idea and act, between various ways people have conceptualized the land and ways they have lived upon it. The program is designed to help enrich American history courses by enabling teachers to bring into them the insights and approaches of the exciting new field of environmental history. It offers teachers a fresh way to engage students by capitalizing upon their interest in things environmental. While Nature Transformed is aimed primarily at teachers of American history, we would welcome applications from English and biology teachers, who would not only derive much from the institute but who would also add valuable perspectives to its discussions.
