The week-long AHA Bridging Cultures Pacific institute at the Huntington Library in San Marino, California, concluded a few weeks back with considerable excitement. The first part of the NEH-sponsored “American History, Atlantic and Pacific” brought together 30 community college faculty members, team leaders, and AHA staff for a busy week of seminars and research.
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.
The Community College Humanities Association hosted a session Friday afternoon on its ongoing Bridging Cultures project, “Advancing the Humanities at Community Colleges,” funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).
