Two-week Summer Teacher’s and Scholar’s Institute (STSI) Application Due April 15, 2015
 
GENERAL INFORMATION
Between 13 and 24 July, 2015, the Columbia University Institute for Research in African-American Studies (#IRAAS) will convene a two-week Summer Teacher’s and Scholar’s Institute (STSI), focusing particularly on the history, cultures, and institutions of African-descended peoples in New York City. New York, home to Harlem and numerous other historic black enclaves, historically and today is one of the capitals of Black America, and even the Black World.
This Summer Institute offers what few others are able: the opportunity to study African-American history, culture, politics, and life through the lens of New York, and in New York.
The Summer Teacher’s and Scholar’s Institute (STSI) will be open to high school and college/university instructors, independent scholars and researchers, public historians, biographers, journalists, and graduate students, and will explore various historical and contemporary themes, including: Slavery, Freedom, Abolitionism, and Emancipation; the New Negro Movement and the Harlem Renaissance; Educating Harlem (and Beyond): Histories of Black Education in New York City; Civil Rights, 1940-the present; Black Women Intellectuals; “Beyond Harlem: Brooklyn and the Bronx”; Race, Policing and Criminal Justice, 1880-present; Black Immigration since 1965; Health/Medical Rights and Politics: From Tuberculosis to HIV; and Black Politics from the Margins to Mainstream.
ELIGIBILITY
The Summer Teacher’s and Scholar’s Institute (STSI) will be open to high school and college/university instructors, independent scholars and researchers, public historians, biographers, journalists, and graduate students.
