Program in New England Studies
Registration begins in January
Each year, Historic New England presents the Program in New England Studies, an intensive learning experience with lectures by curators and architectural historians, workshops, and behind-the-scenes tours of Historic New England’s properties and collections, as well as of other museums and private homes in the region.
Program in New England Studies examines New England history and material culture from the seventeenth century through the Colonial Revival, and delves into building design and technology, and the wide-ranging lifestyles illustrated by the historic sites on the itinerary.
The program is designed to appeal to owners of historic houses, collectors, museum professionals, graduate students, and those who enjoy New England history, and is limited to twenty-five participants.
Several scholarships, including one specifically for candidates from diverse cultural backgrounds, are available for graduate students and mid-career museum professionals to attend the program. Contact Ken Turino at KTurino@HistoricNewEngland.org for more information.
