Co-sponsored by the University of Massachusetts Boston and John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, this course is an intensive two-week program, organized as a series of informative and thought-provoking lectures and discussions led by a distinguished panel of scholars and guests. Participants in the Institute include secondary school teachers from the greater Boston area and graduate students in American studies, political science, history, and related disciplines. Topics vary from year to year, and they are drawn from American history, politics, culture or social policy. Upon completion of the two-week lecture series, students complete an extensive research paper on a topic related to the Institute. Sessions are held at the JFK Library.
