The Wired Humanities Projects at the University of Oregon is organizing and hosting a four-week summer institute, "Mesoamerican Cultures and their Histories: Spotlight on Oaxaca!" in Oaxaca, Mexico, from July 5th through July 31st, 2015 (this summer). 

You can be one of 27 teachers and/or 3 graduate students (who are training to be teachers) to be chosen for this special experience, which comes with a $3300 stipend paid to you from a grant provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities. 

The idea is to develop a curriculum unit for your own classroom use and for sharing with other teachers, while also doing readings, hearing presentations, and taking fascinating educational excursions in and around Oaxaca. Oaxaca, with its rich pre-Columbian past, is also special as a place where indigenous cultural survival is especially notable today. Our four week program includes units on archaeology, ethnohistory (rooted in indigenous-authored manuscripts), ethnobiology, community and urban arts today, and film. You will leave Oaxaca with a passion for the region, its peoples, and their histories. The institute is a unique educational opportunity. Your teaching will be enriched.
