Some twenty-five teachers will be chosen nationally and will receive a stipend from the NEH for participation. Faculty will include, among others, Dr. Thomas Froeschl (History, University of Vienna) and Dr. Rudolf Hopfner, director of the collection of historical instruments in the Hofburg, as well as distinguished scholars from America.
