The National Endowment for the Humanities is funding a four-week institute for college and university teachers at Ferrum College on the topic of “Regional Study and the Liberal Arts: Appalachia Up Close.” Big Creek People in Action of Caretta, West Virginia, is also participating in this project. From a range of disciplines and at both campus and community locations, the Institute will examine Appalachian issues that link regional study to the liberal arts. Leaders expect to choose participants from many regions of the country, not just Appalachia.
The twenty-five teachers selected for the NEH Summer Institute, "Regional Study and the Liberal Arts: Appalachia Up-Close," will receive stipends of $3,000 each. Principal institute faculty are Mary Anglin, Rebecca Bailey, Todd Fredericksen, Tina Hanlon, George Loveland, Gordon McKinney, Susan Mead, Phillip Obermiller, Adriana Trigiani, Frank X. Walker, Vaughan Webb, Lana Whited, and Daniel Woods. The director is Peter Crow. Details and application material may be found at the institute website: www.ferrum.edu/neh. Inquiries to Sandy Doss: firstname.lastname@example.org (540) 365-4321. Application deadline is March 3.
