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

CCHA requests funds to sponsor two Workshops, July 12-18 and July 19-25, 2009 for 50 community college faculty on "Concord, Massachusetts: A Center of Transcendentalism and Social Reform in the 19th Century." Two one-week workshops (25 teachers/week) will examine how Concord served as a center for antebellum social reform activities, with emphasis on the antislavery movement, the women's movement, and the utopian movement. Four prominent visiting scholars will conduct seminars each week. Guided visits to major historic and literary sites will supplement the seminars. Participants will depart Concord with a wealth of ideas and materials that can be used to reinvigorate their classrooms.
