Thomas Jefferson and Community Life at Monticello and the University of Virginia

Two one-week workshops for seventy-two school teachers on Thomas Jefferson and community life at Monticello and the University of Virginia.

"All men are created equal"? Thomas Jefferson and Community Life at Monticello and UVA seeks to bring school teachers together with some of the foremost scholars on Thomas Jefferson in two workshops during the summer of 2016. Participants would explore not only the public spaces that Monticello and the University of Virginia represent, but the private ruminations of their founder as seen through textual, architectural, and archaeological evidence. Such a study, located in historic Charlottesville,Va., and conducted at Monticello and on grounds at the University, will afford participants an unusual opportunity for understanding the private life of Thomas Jefferson that will shed light on his public institutions, his most prominent writings, and the seemingly contradictory aspects of his public image and private life.
