Concord Massachusetts: A Center of Transcendentalism and Social Reform in the 19th Century

Two one-week workshops for 50 community college faculty on the Transcendentalists and 19th-century reform movements in Concord and its vicinity.

CONCORD, MASSACHUSETTS:A CENTER OF TRANSCENDENTALISM AND SOCIAL REFORM IN THE 19TH CENTURY is the title of a pair of workshops to be held in the historically significant Concord, Massachusetts. These workshops are built entirely around the concept that Concord, Massachusetts holds a special place in American culture. The Transcendentalist writers, philosophers, and lecturers who lived, wrote, and lectured in Concord during the 19th Century are among America?s most important creative minds. Another important reason to hold the workshops in this unique setting is in the richness of historic sites and archives within a few miles of the workshops? main meeting sites. Also, the surrounding area, particularly Boston, has many significant opportunities for site visits. And so to more deeply study this very historic locale and appreciate the seminal individuals in American thought who where once there, these workshops are being proposed.
