Bridging Cultures Institute Underway at the Huntington Library

The first of the AHA’s NEH-sponsored Bridging Cultures in Community Colleges institutes kicked off at the Huntington Library in San Marino, California, yesterday. The institute gathers 24 community college faculty members and a half-dozen experts in the history of the Pacific and Pacific worlds to discuss the latest historiography on the subject, and how it might fit into U.S. history survey courses.
