Logistics

Women and Colonization: Early Encounters in Colonial America will use the New-York Historical Society’s vast collections, exhibitions, installations, educational materials, and vibrant community of scholars to provide Summer Scholars with a rigorous and focused training ground for expanded content and pedagogical knowledge.

Founded in 1804 as one of the country’s first collections-based educational institutions, N-YHS is New York’s oldest museum and a nationally renowned research library. As such, it houses priceless objects, images, works of art, documents, manuscripts, and more pertaining to America’s past. Many of its collections are digitized and participants will be able to engage with its resources during synchronous and asynchronous sessions.

Academic Resources

In addition to the New-York Historical Society’s digital resources and the institute readings, participants will also be provided a wealth of additional resources during faculty sessions and pedagogy sessions. Participants will be encouraged to share resources with one another that will be collected and circulated in a comprehensive list by the Project Co-Directors.  

At the conclusion of the Institute, participants who attend all sessions and complete all assignments will receive a certificate of completion along with a detailed letter outlining the syllabus and participants’ responsibilities, which may assist in pursuing continuing education credits in your home district or state.
