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.
