Hartford Heritage: American Lit Course Returns To Twain, Stowe Houses In Fall 2016

Capital Community College’s American Literature course (English 220) will return to the historic Mark Twain House & Museum and Harriet Beecher Stowe Center  in Hartford’s West End in the fall of 2016.

Launched last year through the college’s Hartford Heritage Project and Humanities Chair Jeffrey F.L. Partridge the course focuses on the lives and selected works of Twain and Stowe — two of American Literature’s most influential authors.  Students will read selected works, learn from staff experts and have access to archives and materials at the landmark museums.

The “hybrid” course will be held on Wednesdays from 2 to 4:40 pm alternating one week at Mark Twain House and one week online.

Fall classes at Capital begin on Monday, August 29th. For enrollment and course registration information go to http://www.capitalcc.edu/becomeStudent.htm

About Capital Community’s College Hartford Heritage Project:

The Hartford Heritage Project makes Hartford’s rich and diverse cultural institutions, landmarks, and neighborhoods an extension of our classroom. It was launched in 2010 with a “We The People” grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Hartford Heritage courses make connections between course content and the city of Hartford in order to enhance learning and to increase our understanding of Connecticut’s capital city. Visit: www.capitalcc.edu/HHP/. 

Capital Community College currently seeks support for the Heritage project to receive matching funds from an NEH challenge grant offer.
