NEH Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshops explore early America through the Philadelphia experience.
Workshop highlights include:
- Lectures by leading scholars on topics ranging from Native American history through the early national period.
- Behind-the-scenes tours of Philadelphia's most prominent historic institutions including the National Constitution Center, Independence Hall, and the Liberty Bell. Please note that the days we visit historic sites will entail a good deal of walking in typically warm June weather.
- Research in primary source collections at the Library Company of Philadelphia, the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, the American Philosophical Society, and Independence Seaport Museum.
While in town, NEH Summer Scholars are welcomed into Philadelphia's vibrant community. All will receive a subscription to the Journal of the Early Republic, the journal of record for early national history, and the Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography, the quarterly journal of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania. They are invited to attend a McNeil Center for Early American Studies (MCEAS) Summer Seminar and dinner.
NEH Summer Scholars receive a $1,200 stipend for food, travel and lodging.
