Abstract

The National Endowment for the Humanities and state humanities councils have funded projects which revive and adapt the old tent Chautauqua concept of bringing education and entertainment to America's heartland. In this TPQ interview, John S. Gentile talks with Lou Burton, the project director for the highly successful Rocky Mountain Chautauqua, who discusses the challenges, problems, and rewards of teaching history through performance in public humanities projects.
