“Rethinking America in Global Perspective” begins

The National History Center’s “Rethinking America in Global Perspectives” began today at the Library of Congress. One of the National Endowment for the Humanities’ summer institutes, “Rethinking America” brings together twenty-five two- and four-year American history teachers from across the country, and indeed, from around the world, for four weeks of seminar discussions and research at the Library! The institute is co-sponsored by the American Historical Association and the Community College Humanities Association. The group is lead by John R. Gillis, Professor Emeritus of History from Rutgers University, and Carl J. Guarneri, Professor of History at Saint Mary’s College of California.
