In this interdisciplinary summer institute our goal will be to listen—literally and metaphorically—to travel. College and university teachers from across the nation will come together to explore the intersections between the history of music and the history of travel in early modern Europe and the colonial Americas in the period from 1500 to 1800.
The Institute will accept 19 college or university teachers and 3 advanced graduate students as NEH Summer Scholars, who will participate in a four-week series of lectures and discussion sessions led by scholars in the fields of history, musicology, literature, and theater studies.
Directed by Carla Zecher, Director of the Newberry Center for Renaissance Studies and Curator of Music.
