Charleston, South Carolina, will be the site of two one-week summer NEH Landmarks in American History workshops for K-12 educators. The workshops, entitled "Slavery and Freedom in Charleston and the Low Country," will be conducted by history faculty and master teachers associated with the Richards Civil War Era Center at Penn State University. The workshop includes seminars at the Avery Institute of Afro-American History and Culture, a walking tour of Charleston, and trips to Fort Sumter, Drayton Hall plantation, and the Sea Islands. Workshop participants will be housed in dormitories at the College of Charleston during their stay, and each will receive a $500 stipend for participating. Some financial assistance for travel expenses may also be available. Applications must be postmarked by March 15, 2004, in order to receive consideration. Please visit our webpage or contact Karen Ebeling for more information. We look forward to meeting and working with you in Charleston this summer!
