June 3 - 14 Classroom: Monday - Friday 9:00am - 12:00pm

June 16 - 22 Travel 

Southern Studies, an accredited, cross-curricular, team-taught elective, is back for its fourth year.  Students in this seminar engage in a philosophical enquiry of how environment and place work to shape identity and culture.  They are challenged to look at the South through the lenses of history, literature, music, art and architecture, and foodways.  As in previous years, students spend two weeks of classroom study followed by one week travelling to several Southern states in order to connect experientially with the physical and cultural geography of the South.

This summer, we plan to spend some time in those Southern states in the Appalachian region and on the Eastern coast of the United States. We will focus our attention on the revolutionary period, the expansion and explosion of the domestic slave trade, the outcome of the Civil War and the tumultuous period known as Reconstruction, the implementation of Jim Crow segregation, and the Civil Rights Movement.  Of course, all this history will be complemented by some of the most inventive and inspiring literature ever produced in the United States, a healthy dose of iconic Southern music, an introduction to some iconic Southern photographers, and finally, lots of really delicious food. Just a few highlights are likely to include visits to Lexington, Kentucky; Richmond, Virginia; Monticello and Montpelier (the homes of Thomas Jefferson and James Madison respectively), the International Civil Rights Center in Greensboro, North Carolina; the USS Battleship in Wilmington, North Carolina; and the beautiful city of Charleston, South Carolina.

In keeping with the interdisciplinary and experiential nature of the class, artistic activity, broadly speaking, is an important area of focus. At the heart of Southern Studies lies the essential question of how we reconcile the profoundly different visions of writers, musicians, chefs, artists and historians who all claim to depict and explain the South. Consequently, students should expect to grapple with the paradoxical nature of Southern identity by engaging in a number of hands-on classroom activities.  By visiting the cities and places that give rise to these diverse and complex interpretations of what it means to be Southern, our students are made visually aware of the living dichotomies of the past and present, Old South and New South, urban renewal and rural tradition, and homogeneity and diversity.

The class is reading and writing intensive and students also complete an interdisciplinary project - such as a photo journal, travelogue, or writing portfolio - as their final assessment.

Dates and Cost:

The class meets for three hours every weekday from June 3rd to June 14th with travel taking place during the third week (Saturday June 16th - Saturday June 22nd).  Cost for the class and the trip will be $1,750.00 (includes tuition, travel expenses, hotel accommodations, breakfast and dinner - students will need pocket money to purchase lunch and for incidental expenses).

Space for the class is limited, and although formal registration will be open in February, interested students and families may direct all initial enquiries to Jane Sidey (phone: 317 501-0442; email: jsidey@parktudor.org) or Sven Dubie (phone: 317 415-2884; email: sdubie@parktudor.org).

Calling all students interested in history!  Do you want to learn how to be a "History Detective"? Are you interested in acquiring skills to be a great investigator?  Are you fascinated by the events of the US Civil War, WWII, or later wars?  Here is an opportunity to explore original documents and artifacts, hone your research skills, discover something new about an individual, and share your findings in a report in WordPress.  

Here are some of the exciting opportunities which await you:

- Become a part of a team investigating case files for Civil War Veterans

-Be a sleuth looking for information on a WWI sub-chaser ship and its crew in 1918-1919 

-Generate a map of Europe from D-Day to end of WWII for different soldiers as they push back the enemy and achieve final victory 

-Study code breaking efforts in the Pacific in WWII or during the American Civil War

-Investigate immigrant histories for soldiers serving in Civil War and/or WWI units 

-Is there a link to your family and service—what documents will prove this? What was their motivation to serve?

-Investigate your own family history: share an artifact with the class (this is PT’s version of the Antiques Roadshow) and begin a discussion of what it might be and why it is intriguing.

Students will have hands-on opportunities to explore military & family history through original documents representing a range of American's wars: from Civil War to Vietnam or later.  We will work with maps, after-action reports, oral history transcripts, photographs, letters and diaries.  Students will learn how to identify good clues, learn effective strategies to decode one's own or another family's history, and how to add supporting evidence and historical context to an individual's story.  Finally, put a special individual, event or artifact: "into the picture" with a final presentation.  

 Students are encouraged to bring their own personal device to access online sites such as the National Archives, Library of Congress, Ancestry.com, FamilyFinder.com, and Park Tudor Legacy Initiative Collections.

Instructor: Joe Fumusa

Isn’t senior year too busy as it is? Give yourself a head start and work on your essays for your college applications this summer! During this seminar, we will take a look at the types of essays that colleges require, critically evaluate successful examples of essays (and those not so successful), and write and edit several college essays (from the questions on the Common Application) that you will have ready for the fall. We will review the components of an outstanding essay – especially the unique strengths and talents you would bring to various schools. Finally, we will peruse college websites and examine their cultures to gain further insight for your work. A college admissions representative will also visit to share thoughts on the entire admissions process and the role the college essay plays in that process.
