Educational programming at the East Hampton Historical Society uses an interdisciplinary teaching philosophy.

To learn about educational opportunities or design a program, please email Director of Education, Stacy Myers (smyers@easthamptonhistory.org).

Interdisciplinary instruction entails the use and integration of methods and analytical frameworks from more than one academic discipline to examine a theme, issue, question or topic. Interdisciplinary education makes use of disciplinary approaches to examine topics, but pushes beyond by taking insights from a variety of relevant disciplines, synthesizing their contribution to understanding, and then integrating these ideas into a more complete, and coherent, framework of analysis. Regardless of where the class visits, lesson plans reflect the ages and developmental needs and abilities of participating students.

Our educational mission is to serve the people of East Hampton through the collection, preservation and interpretation of the cultural heritage of Suffolk County and extends through partnerships with schools and other educational institutions and universities.
