"Get Up, Stand Up: Resistance Through Popular Music and Poetry"
July 19-24, 2021 Summer Teacher Institute
The Idaho Humanities Council’s 2021 weeklong summer teacher institute, titled “Get Up, Stand Up: Resistance Through Popular Music and Poetry,” will be held July 19-24, 2021 (Monday through Saturday), on the campus of the College of Idaho.
During this extraordinary time in U.S. history, institute participants will examine protest poetry and music as scholars focus on an exploration of historical and contemporary protest expressions around the country. Selected teachers will join in lectures and discussions, watch films, attend workshops, and collaborate with one another and the leading scholars to immerse themselves for the week. They will return to their classrooms armed with resources and renewed motivation to incorporate the topic into their curriculum. Evening presentations on the topic will be scheduled during the week and will be free and open to the general public.
Scholar presenters confirmed so far include Carolyn González, California State University Monterey Bay, Jan Johnson, University of Idaho, and Bob Santelli, Director, Grammy Museum. More information, including application details, will be available January 2021 at www.idahohumanities.org.
