Community College Humanities Association (Baltimore, MD 21237-3899)
Paul F. Benson (Project Director: March 2010 to August 2013)
Thomas Jefferson: Legacies and Landmarks

Two one-week Landmarks workshops for fifty community college faculty members focusing on Thomas Jefferson's influence on the Republic as exemplified by Monticello, the Library of Congress, and the University of Virginia.

The Community College Humanities Association proposes to sponsor two one-week workshops, July 10-16 and then repeated July 17-23, 2011, for 50 community college faculty members focusing on Thomas Jefferson and his iconic landmarks: Monticello, the Library of Congress, and the University of Virginia. Few Americans are held in as high regard as Jefferson and a study of Jefferson is an avenue of appreciation for his influence on the American culture. From the writing of the Declaration of Independence to the founding of the University of Virginia, the range of Jefferson’s interests and influence is without equal. Whether viewed as a philosopher farmer, political pragmatist or idealist, far-sighted scientist, serious statesman, or educational visionary, Jefferson’s encyclopedic interests and endless energy are legendary. These workshops will involve a seven-day schedule of seminars and study featuring scholars who will give presentations covering key aspects of Jefferson’s life.
