All fields marked with * are mandatory.

Our complex American history and heritage are at risk of being lost in the current fast-paced, youth-oriented culture, which has little use for the legacies of past generations. The pages of Connecticut’s own historical records are replete with rich and varied stories of remarkable lives and important accomplishments deserving of recognition and analysis. This course will bring together several experts who have undertaken to reclaim those stories.
