The Dominguez Rancho Adobe Museum and CSU Dominguez Hills will host an NEH Landmarks in American History and Culture Workshop “American History through the Eyes of a California Family,” Summer 2011. Workshops trace the Dominguez family history for over two centuries and explore how their family history and lands are entwined in California’s rich Indian, Spanish, Mexican and American history. Teachers and librarians (grades K-12) throughout the United States are invited to apply for this workshop featuring well-known scholars and experiential learning using artifacts and archival documents. Also included are full immersion workshops (such as the indigenous period foods), and field trips to sites bringing history to life and life to history. Workshops will address the Dominguez family business and inheritance strategies as well as the influence of natives and migrants from varied social and cultural backgrounds.
NEH Summer Scholars (successful applicants) will also analyze how territorial and industrial expansion transformed the American people. Workshops will be held June 13-17, 2011 and repeated June 20-24, 2011. Information and application materials are available at: www.csudh.edu/csl/dominguez
