    external resource from National Endowment for the Humanities, The Political Theory of Hannah Arendt: NEH Summer Seminar - Applications Due March 1, 2017

    This Seminar offers stimulating dialogue for School Teachers (K-12) of all disciplines, including history, social studies, philosophy, literature, philosophy, and government. Given the varied responses to the recent election and the documented increase in incidents of hateful speech and other attacks on school campuses and in classrooms across the country, having a space to learn and practice how to engage difficult conversations on controversial subjects is needed now more than ever. Although the seminar emphasizes the analysis of history and political theory, it serves to foster community among school teachers and change-makers interested in practicing and encouraging critical thinking about contested political and ethical issues framed by what Hannah Arendt called “the human condition of plurality.” The seminar will take place over the course of four weeks at UC Davis, June 25 through July 21, 2017.
