There will be a five week summer institute for college teachers focused on the role of the federal government and the American West. It is called “View from the East: The Federal Government and the American West” and is part of the National Endowment for the Humanities program of summer institutes. Twenty-five teachers, graduate students and scholars of western U. S. history will participate in the institute at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia. Historians Patty Limerick, Richard White, Dave Edmunds, Elliott West, among others, and historians working in federal agencies, will join the institute for presentations and discussions. We will also have field trips to government agencies, archives and museums. The NEH grant includes stipends for participants of $3,900 for transportation, room and board.. For further information visit the institute’s website or email Richard Stillson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
