Winthrop University: NEH Seminar - Location

NEH Seminar


Asheville N.C. was chosen for its rich history as an arts and health center, enabling seminar participants explore how looking at one place over a period of time allows insight into national and local history/trends. We will take a look at artifacts such as scrapbooks, travelogues, and ephemera with a fresh eye - move it to the center to study from various disciplines - to look at what was being collected and why. This material will no longer be viewed as detritus, but rather as exempla of very human attempts to make sense of life. By so doing, we hope to model how scholars can mine other local resources for such material.
