Mapping the American Experience: A ConnectED Initiative Institute 2016

Mapping the American Experience is a collaboration between the National Humanities Center and central North Carolina school districts to create professional development training for K-12 educators on the use of GIS technology in teaching and scholarship. With a focus on geoliteracy skills as it applies to the humanities, each session will support the integration and application of ESRI services to curriculum and classroom.

John Corrigan, “Religious Toleration in America”

Religious Toleration in America

Americans have long pictured themselves as all but free of religious intolerance and have difficulty coming to terms with the kinds of religious conflict and violence that occur in other parts of the world. In this podcast, host Richard Schramm talks with John Corrigan about America’s often forgotten history of religious intolerance despite our ideals and how that history has been all but lost. Their conversation also offers a preview of an NHC webinar, “Religious Freedom and Religious Intolerance in America,” which took place on Thursday, March 24, 2016.
