NEH workshops feature well known scholars, hand-on work with artifacts and archival documents, full immersion workshops that will bring history to life, experiential learning opportunities, and field trips to sites to fully immerse participants in the history they are learning. Workshops address the Dominguez family business and inheritance strategies and their relationship to natives and migrants from varied social and cultural backgrounds. Successful applicants whose title will become NEH Summer Scholars will also analyze how territorial industrial expansion transformed the American people and how massive immigration after 1870, including the Chinese, some of whom became laborers on Dominguez lands, formed new social patterns and concepts about national identity. $1200 stipends are offered to help cover expenses. Workshops will be offered twice and applicants may apply to one, but not both, workshops. The first is the week of June 13-17, 2011 and the second is the week of June 20-24, 2011.
