Winter Weekend

The Council’s annual Winter Weekend, a humanities seminar on a classic text, provides an opportunity for participants to explore, in a group setting, an important work of literature.

Traditionally held at Bowdoin College in early March, the program begins with a Friday evening lecture and dinner (a gastronomic taste of the time and culture reflected in the chosen text). The group reconvenes Saturday morning to spend the day enjoying presentations by scholars on various aspects of the book, from cultural context, to critical analysis, to explorations of specific themes.

The program fee includes:

  • a copy of the text (provided well in advance)
  • background readings and study questions
  • dinner, lunch and reception
  • tuition covering lectures, exhibits, presentations and discussion groups
CEUs are available to participating teachers.
