The Rural Heritage Institute at Sterling College (RHI) is a four-day
series of interdisciplinary academic, experiential, and instructional
field-based workshops scheduled for June 10-14, 2008.
Each of the four days of the event will highlight and strengthen
connections between scholarship on rural communities in northern New
England and field experience with and in working communities
throughout the region.
The Institute emphasizes a model of community learning and
experiential academics shared by our host venue. Sterling College,
located only 30 miles from the Canadian border in the heart of
Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, is an ideal place in which to explore the
interwoven threads of place, culture, and community heritage.
