ES-50352-10

Indiana University, Bloomington (Bloomington, IN 47405-7000)
Christoph Irmscher (Project Director: March 2010 to May 2012)
Picturing John James Audubon

A four-week institute for twenty-five school teachers on the art and writing of John James Audubon in their historical context.

The purpose of the Institute, directed by a literary historian (Christoph Irmscher) and taught collaboratively by a core faculty consisting of an internationally known writer (Scott Russell Sanders), an art historian (Alan Braddock) and a curator of rare books (Joel Silver), is to give interested teachers an opportunity to study Audubon's art and writing in juxtaposition and in their historical context. Our primary goals for the Institute are to inspire teachers with a variety of backgrounds (English, History, Art, Biology) to incorporate American art into their curricula, to stimulate them to pursue research on their own, and to further their career goals.
