New website on the history and culture of the United States Southwest
Southwest Crossroads, a website on the history, literature, and arts of New Mexico and the Southwestern United States, is now available at <http://www.southwestcrossroads.org/>.
A dynamic and interactive website, Southwest Crossroads presents nearly 1,000 historical documents, oral histories, poetry, fiction, maps, paintings, and traditional and 3-D photographs that explore the many, sometimes conflicting, stories that diverse peoples have used to make sense of New Mexico and each other, from the very earliest inhabitants to the present moment. The website will be consistently enriched with new materials.
In addition to its wealth of primary sources, Southwest Crossroads includes lesson plans for teachers and students in grades 7-12. Teachers can set up free accounts to bookmark material for use in their classrooms.
Partially funded under a National Endowment for the Humanities “We the People” grant, Southwest Crossroads is the product of a collaboration between two non-profit organizations: the School for Advanced Research, a center for scholarship in the humanities and social sciences, and Project Crossroads, a curriculum-development organization. The NEH is not responsible for the content of Southwest Crossroads.
