Milton’s Paradise Lost in Its 17th-Century Contexts
A National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Institute
28 June through 31 July 2004
University of Arizona, Tucson Arizona
The Institute welcomes applications from teachers at any level of literature, writing, history, social studies, art, and religion—or any other subject to which the Institute seems relevant. Participants need not be teaching, or intending to teach, Milton’s poetry. The primary consideration is interest—not expertise—in the topic.
The Institute will approach Paradise Lost as a work of imaginative literature—even as a work of fiction—that speaks to the human condition. It will also consider the text within its contemporary artistic, political and literary setting and as the work of an author fully engaged in his life and age, which was as turbulent and revolutionary as any in the history of the English-speaking peoples.
Participants will receive a stipend of $3,250 to cover transportation and living expenses.
Application deadline: 1 March 2004.
