NEH 2005 Summer Seminar: Early American Microhistories
Faculty are invited to apply for a four-week National Endowment for the Humanities Seminar on Early American Microhistories led by Professor Richard D. Brown, and meeting Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, June 6-June 30, 2005. Visiting faculty: Irene Quenzler Brown, John Demos, Robert A. Gross, and Gordon S. Wood.
Seminar invites participation by 15 humanists in several fields who aim to enrich their understanding and use of microhistory in research and teaching. By reading and discussing a variety of studies, participants will assess different approaches to narrative. Richard Brown and the visiting faculty will lead the seminar in considering how to select and conceptualize a subject, choice of research techniques, and narrative strategy.
The seminar will closely examine one study, drawn from the Browns’ work, going from primary sources, to conceptualizing chapters, to narrative approach and selection of illustrations. Participants will develop and report to the seminar on their own projects, either original research or the use of microhistory in teaching.
Stipend for participants is $3,000, intended for travel, food, and lodging.
Applications must be postmarked no later than March 1, 2005
