Amherst College will host a National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Seminar for K-12 teachers from June 27-July 29, 2005. The seminar will be directed by Austin Sarat of the Departments of Political Science and Law, Jurisprudence and Social Thought. It will examine three questions: What is punishment and why do we punish as we do? What can we learn about politics, law, and culture in the United States from an examination of our practices of punishment? What are the appropriate limits of punishment? The application deadline is March 1, 2005. Information is available at the web address shown below. If you have any questions regarding the seminar or the application process, contact Karen Underwood at the phone number or e-mail address given below.
