We announce the NEH Summer Seminar for College Professors on “English Encounters with the Americas, 1550-1610," to be held at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts July 5-29, 2011. This seminar will consider primary sources on Anglo-American contact in these early decades through an interdisciplinary lens, using evidence and methods from several different disciplines. We hope to attract a diverse group of applicants. Sixteen applicants will be chosen to participate in this summer seminar, and each participant will receive a stipend of $3,300 to help defray the costs of travel, housing and meals.
Deadline for applying to participate: March 1, 2011.
Seminar dates: July 5-29, 2011 at MIT.
For more details and to see Prof. Mary Fuller's "Dear Colleague" letter which you will need to complete the application, please visit the seminar website at http://web.mit.edu/neh/english_encounters/.
