The American Historical Association is pleased to announce the names of 24 faculty members (from 12 two-year institutions across the United States) who will be taking part in our “American History, Atlantic and Pacific.” The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is supporting this project through a three-year agreement with the AHA, as part of their “Bridging Cultures at Community Colleges” initiative.
Participants in this project will work to create or revise U.S. history courses—especially the popular U.S. history survey courses—with lessons, units, and other work that deepens students understanding of the United States in the world, with particular reference to the Atlantic and Pacific rims.
The selected participants are:
Del Mar College
Kimberly DeJoie Hill
Georgia Highlands College
Carlos A. Contreras
Oscar R. Cañedo
Irvine Valley College
Johnson County Community College
Kapi’olani Community College
Brian L Cassity
Kelli Yoshie Nakamura
Metropolitan Community College
Mt. San Antonio College
Santa Monica College
Seattle Central Community College
Jaime Cardenas, Jr.
SUNY-Suffolk County Community College
Sarah Lucinda Grunder
Waubonsee Community College
These twelve institutions were selected from a very strong applicant pool of 26 community colleges from across the United States. This three-year project will start January 2013 with a week-long institute at the Huntington Library in San Marino California. For more information about participating faculty, and the project itself, please visit our Bridging Cultures page on the AHA website.
