ANNOUNCING: Summer 2007
National Endowment for the Humanities (U.S.A.)
Seminars and Institutes for College and University Teachers
Application Deadline: March 1, 2007
Each summer the National Endowment for the Humanities supports a variety of study opportunities in the humanities for faculty who teach American undergraduates. Seminars and institutes are national, residential, and rigorous. Program participants in these 2-6 week projects receive stipends to help defray travel and living expenses. Foreign nationals teaching abroad are not eligible to participate.
Topics considered among the 27 seminars and institutes offered in the summer of 2007 include American Indian ethnohistory, African American history as public history, pragmatism, the Scottish Enlightenment, the Reformation, Berber North Africa, the Middle East, York Cathedral, Chinese culture, Brazilian literature, and Roman religion, as well as works by Oscar Wilde, James Joyce, Charles Dickens, and Flannery O'Connor. Most of these seminars and institutes take place on American campuses, but some will be held at sites abroad: Dublin, Ireland; St. Andrews, Scotland; York, England; Rome, Italy; Antwerp, Belgium; Oaxaca, Mexico; Campinas, Brazil; and Buenos Aires, Argentina.
