Applications are invited from two- and four-year college teachers from all humanities disciplines for an NEH Summer Institute, sponsored by the American Historical Association, on the topic, "Rethinking America in Global Perspective." With the aim of internationalizing American history at the college level, this institute will bring together teachers and scholars for four weeks of research and discussion (June 20-July 15, 2005)at the Library of Congress. The institute will cover American history from the pre-contact era to the present in its continental, hemispheric, and transoceanic contexts. Its directors are John Gillis of Rutgers University and Carl Guarneri of St. Mary's College of California. Guest faculty include Thomas Bender, Neal Salisbury, Karen Kupperman, Eliga Gould, Charles Bright, Michael Adas, Victoria de Grazia, and John McNeil.
All fellows will receive a stipend of $3000 and access to the major research institutions in Washington. Fellows will explore individual research topics and participate in discussions of curriculum development. Housing arrangements are available. The application deadline is March 1, 2005.
