The Institute for Constitutional Studies is pleased to announce its second annual Interdisciplinary Summer Workshop for College Instructors. This summer's workshop will take place from July 6-11 on the campus of Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, and is cosponsored by Emory University and the Georgia Humanities Council. Professor Sally Hadden of Florida State University will lead the workshop.
DESCRIPTION: Whether you intend to devote a whole course, a unit, or just a few days as part of a history survey class to the constitutional convention, the 2008 ICS summer seminar will give you the tools you need to do it successfully. To understand how and why the Constitution was written as it was, we will explore fully the period from 1688 through 1791 in Great Britain and America. We will provide instructors with useful information on basic and advanced subject matter, appropriate course readings, and approaches that work in the classroom. Our twin goals are to foster the intellectual growth of seminar participants and to meet their pedagogical needs.
Participants will receive free lodging in dormitory space provided by Emory University. In addition, they will receive a modest stipend as well as a travel reimbursement up to $250.
The summer workshop is designed for college-level instructors who now teach or plan to teach undergraduate courses in constitutional studies, including constitutional history, constitutional law, and related subjects. All qualified college-level instructors are welcome to apply. Preference will be given to applicants from the Southeast region of the United States, who teach at liberal arts colleges. Foreign nationals teaching outside of the United States are not eligible to apply. The deadline for applications is April 11, 2008. Please see the ICS website (http://www.law.gwu.edu/ics) for further information on the workshop and application process.
