High school teachers from across the nation were selected to participate in Language Matters II: Reading and Teaching Toni Morrison, an intensive week-long NEH workshop held July 9-17, 2005 at Northern Kentucky University. As part of the workshop, participants studied all of Morrison’s novels and children’s books under the guidance of leading Morrison scholars and master teachers, visited Cincinnati’s National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, attended the Cincinnati Opera’s premiere performance of Margaret Garner, and participated in the 4th Biennial Conference of the Toni Morrison Society, July 14-17, 2005.  Sponsors for Language Matters II include the Toni Morrison Society, Northern Kentucky University, and the University of Kansas.

Discussions of Morrison's novels from this workshop are available online in text and audio.

These discussions are part of the online course ENGL 324 Contemporary Authors: Toni Morrison offered by the University of Kansas. Course preview
