Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville (Edwardsville, IL 62026-0001)
Howard Rambsy (Project Director: March 2020 to present)
Frederick Douglass and Literary Crossroads

A one-week institute for 25 school teachers on Frederick Douglass and African American literary studies.

The proposed Institute, "Frederick Douglass and Literary Crossroads" seeks to strengthen pedagogical engagements with The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass (1845) by making secondary school teachers aware of new developments in African American literary studies and an array of print-based, audio and visual texts, and digital resources. The African American literature program at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville proposes a one-week institute that will give language arts educators opportunities to enrich their views of how The Narrative resides at the intersections of autobiography, creative arts, and scholarly discourse. The proposed Institute will involve participants in lively discussions, workshops, technology activities, and collaborative projects designed to enhance interpretive capabilities and pedagogical expertise.
