Bridging Historias

BRIDGING HISTORIAS through Latino History and Culture: An NEH Bridging Cultures at Community Colleges Project

The Bridging Historias through Latino History and Culture Resource Website is the result of a two-year interdisciplinary humanities faculty development program directed by the American Social History Project/Center for Media and Learning (ASHP/CML) in partnership with Queensborough Community College (QCC).  The current website is still in development.

Funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), Bridging Historias addresses the increasingly influential body of scholarship on the importance of Latino/a culture in American history, that remains under-represented in most college history textbooks and teaching collections.  This website contains the research and teaching materials used by 42 community college faculty and administrators in the greater New York City region (Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, and eastern Pennsylvania), including scholarly talks and teaching presentations by visiting lecturers.  The website is designed to provide scholarly resources for incorporating Latino history and culture into the humanities and social science classroom, and for the public.  More faculty-created lessons will be added soon.

This web resource has been made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities: Celebrating 50 Years of Excellence.  Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this web resource do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
