Congratulations to Dr. Ronald Angelo Johnson, who will co-direct a $146,000 National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) grant project with Karin Wulf and the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture. The three-week teacher institute on “Teaching the History and Culture of Vast Early America” will bring K-12 teachers to the Omohundro Institute at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia to explore the #VastEarlyAmerica and to introduce them to tools of historical discovery that will facilitate research projects about the early American history of the places where they live and teach.
Sic ‘em, Dr. Johnson!
