Participants will receive a stipend of $2800 to cover expenses. The institute, which builds upon successful NEH summer institutes offered in 1996 and 2000, will enable faculty from various universities to develop their interdisciplinary understanding and plan strong, innovative curricula that integrate social science and the humanities and build intercultural knowledge. Mark Busby will direct the Institute, and the Faculty includes Francine Carraro (National Museum of Wildlife Art), Jesús F. de la Teja (SWT), Dan Flores (U. of Montana), Don Graham (U. of Texas), Ana Juarez (SWT), James Kimmel (SWT), José Limón (U. of Texas), Scott Slovic (U. of Nevada, Reno), and David Weber (SMU).The Institute will concentrate on 1)the Historical Southwest, 2) the Changing Natural Environment of the Southwest, 3) the Literary Southwest, and 4) the Visual Southwest.
