NCHC Faculty Institute
July 14-19, 2015
A project of NCHC Honors Semesters Committee
New Mexico is home to a variety of cultures and peoples, reflecting
a myriad of identities and worldviews resulting from centuries of resisting, clashing, blending, and negotiating. This faculty institute will
consider questions of how natural and built places of the region create
connections and/or divides among the diverse peoples in New Mexico.
Explorations will focus on the neighborhoods of Albuquerque and the
contrasting pueblos of Isleta and Acoma as well as the landscapes in
and around these destinations. Questions to be considered include:
How do the natural and built environments in and around Albuquerque work? How does this rapidly growing urban environment contrast
with the longstanding Isleta and Acoma pueblos? How do the two
pueblos register their unique histories? Who lives and works in these
places? Through readings, discussions, explorations, and observations,
participants will discover how a range of identities, spaces, and places
shape this unique part of the country. The Institute will be housed at
the historic Hotel Andaluz, built by New Mexico native Conrad Hilton
in 1939, with easy access to Albuquerque, the pueblos, and Santa Fe.
I N S T I T U T E AT A G L A N C E
Participants will engage in direct observation, discussions, interviews,
writing assignments, and mapping exercises. The Institute will culminate with a workshop on adaptations of City as Text™ methodology
to participants’ home campuses and to residential travel programs or
academic service-learning immersion projects. Both the structure and
content of this particular Institute apply remarkably well to travel sites
of all kinds; we will explore and compare these possibilities together.
PA R T I C I PA N T S
The Land, People, Place: (Dis)Connections in New Mexico Institute is
designed for honors and non-honors faculty and administrators who
wish to incorporate interdisciplinary and field-based elements into
their courses and programs. Alumni of earlier Institutes have used
City as Text™ pedagogy in disciplines ranging from the arts and social
sciences to math and science. Ideal as integrative learning modalities,
these experiential strategies include reflective practices and writing assignments that can be adapted for use in student orientations, campus
assessments, and professional development workshops. Identifying and
transferring principles of integrative experiential learning are important
goals of this Institute.
