NEH Grant to Fund 'Landmarks of American History' Workshop

August 9, 2018

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) has awarded a grant to Dr. Rachel Reinhard (UCBHSSP) and Prof. Mark Brilliant to reprise their Landmarks of American History workshop for teachers next summer.

The workshop, titled "Movement, Mobilization, and Militarization: World War II and the Home Front," will focus on three themes: the movement of diverse peoples westward, altering the cultural landscape of the state and nation; how mobilization for war altered previous social roles and expectations, the economy, and industrial work; and how militarization had lasting implications on technology, industry, and civil rights.

For more information about the workshop, visit the UCBHSSP website.
