Tsongas Industrial History Center Workshop: “Labor and Landscape: Lowell as Nineteenth Century Crucible”
Attention K-12 teachers, administrators, and librarians: Apply now for the Tsongas Industrial History Center’s Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshop funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. Our workshop, “Labor and Landscape: Lowell as Nineteenth Century Crucible,” is June 21-26, 2020 and July 12-17, 2020 (choose one week).
Come to the “mill city” of Lowell, Massachusetts, to study Lowell's industrial history as an environmental “crucible” where various elements came together and transformations resulted. We use the resources of Lowell National Historical Park, the city of Lowell, and other cultural/historical sites (specifically, Old Sturbridge Village and Walden Pond) to consider nineteenth-century textile manufacturing as a moment when multiple ways of using nature collided.
Location: Tsongas Industrial History Center, Lowell, Massachusetts
Application Deadline: March 1, 2020
