Each summer, the National Endowment for the Humanities supports national residential seminars and institutes for faculty who teach American undergraduates.
These study opportunities allow faculty and a select number of graduate students to increase their knowledge of current scholarship and advance their own teaching and research. Participants in these two- to six-week projects receive stipends to help cover travel and living expenses.
The 21 seminars and institutes for summer 2011 will address the following topics:
American material culture
Development of Eurasian studies
Mayan history and culture
Shakespeare reception and adaptation
African-American history and biography
The early American republic
Native Americans in the South
History and culture of India
English encounters with the Americas
Twentieth-century American philosophy
Walter Benjamins later writings
Modernism in Shanghai and Berlin
Roman art and culture
Cultural unity and diversity in Southeast Asia
Sustainability and the humanities
Many seminars and institutes take place on American campuses; others are held at sites in Belize, Guatemala, Mexico, India, and Italy.
