This year's NEH Summer Programs in the Humanities for School and College Educators have been announced. All programs are tuition-free (just the way we like it!), and most deadlines for application are in March, so get going!
Special mentions (two of these three programs are in Istanbul):
Istanbul Between East and West: Crossroads of History
Roots of the Arab Spring
Ottoman Cultures: Society, Politics, and Trade in the Turkish Empire 1299-1922
Look into these opportunities now, and get your application in!

Happy to announce that WRAL's excellent 30-minute documentary on Muslims in North Carolina, Faith, Fear, and Freedom, is now viewable online here.
This is a powerful teaching tool even if you're outside North Carolina. Take a look, and think about introducing your class to these families and discussing the challenges they face in a post-9/11 America.
