BRIDGING HISTORIAS through Latino History and Culture: An NEH Bridging Cultures at Community Colleges Project

Funded by the NEH, Bridging Historias addresses the increasingly influential body of scholarship on the importance of Latino/a culture in American history, that remains under-represented in most college history textbooks and teaching collections. The website contains the research and teaching materials used by 42 community college faculty and administrators in the greater New York City region, including scholarly talks and teaching presentations by visiting lecturers. The website is designed to provide scholarly resources for incorporating Latino history and culture into the humanities classroom, and for the general public.
