Please consider applying for this NEH Summer Seminar for School Teachers. Investigating the interrelationship of religion, literature, and history of late medieval and early modern England (c. 1385-1685), this seminar will meet from June 23 until July 18, 2007 at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. Participants will investigate interrelationships among literature, history, and religion in late medieval and early modern England. In addition to considering the literary and historical impact of pre-Reformation, Protestant Reformation, and Catholic Reformation religious beliefs and practices, this seminar will address the impact of printing as one of its themes.
Professor John N. King will direct this seminar. In past years he has directed four NEH Summer Seminars for College and University Teachers and co-directed two more. He has also published extensively on late medieval and Renaissance literature and culture in relation to religion, history, the history of the book, and the visual arts. Professor Jack Zevin of the Department of Secondary Education and Youth Services at Queens College of the City University of New York will also join him in conducting a two-day workshop on the design of high school teaching units, selection of readings, the use of audio-visual aids, and the evaluation of student performance.
This program should appeal to teachers at the eleventh- and twelfth-grade level of public and private schools, including those who teach Advanced Placement courses in British literature or European history. Participants will receive a stipend of $3,000 in order to defray expenses for transportation, lodging, meals, and incidental expensess.
