Addiction in American History

A three-week institute for thirty school teachers on the history and literature of addiction in twentieth-century America.


The NEH Summer Institutes provide professional development opportunities for secondary schoolteachers. The institutes offer models of exemplary teaching and scholarship on a variety of topics related to the humanities. This institute on Addiction in American History will support the College of Medicine's educational and community outreach goals. It will draw on the Program Director’s teaching experience with secondary education and medical humanities, the subject area expertise of visiting and onsite program faculty, and the unique historical assets of Lexington, Kentucky- home to the nation’s central federal addiction treatment facility from the 1930s until the 1970s- to equip educators to address this timely yet enduring topic using the established humanistic techniques of historical analysis and close reading.
