I’d like to invite you to consider applying for “Magazine Modernism,” a Summer Seminar for College and University Teachers sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The seminar will be directed by Sean Latham and hosted at the University of Tulsa from 12 July to 6 August 2010.
This broad-ranging, interdisciplinary seminar will bring together modernist scholars and digital humanists to explore the emerging field of periodical studies. As a group, the seminar will explore the this vigorous new intellectual field that thrives both within and between the disciplines of literature, history, art, print culture, and sociology. At the same time, we will experiment with cutting-edge tools in the digital humanities. Throughout the seminar, you will have access to McFarlin Library’s renowned Special Collections as well as the Modernist Journals Project, the Journal of Modern Periodical Studies, and the James Joyce Quarterly. Drawing on these resources, you’ll be able to pursue interdisciplinary research and pedagogical projects of your own choosing using a diverse array of primary print and digital materials. In intensive seminar sessions, we’ll draw on one another’s unique strengths while also working with the expert scholars, teachers, and archivists who will be on hand. By the seminar’s end, you’ll will emerge with new ideas for teaching and research on magazines and with a richer sense of modernism’s rise in the English-speaking world.
Information about the seminar (including a schedule of events and speakers) as well as eligibility requirements can be found online at . Participants will receive generous stipends designed to defray the costs of housing, travel, and research while in residence. For the first time, some slots in the seminar will be specifically set aside for graduate students whose research intersects with the seminar’s topic.
For more information or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at . And please do share this message anyone you know who might be interested. The deadline for application is 2 March 2010.
