Georgia College & State University is hosting "Reconsidering Flannery O'Connor," a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Summer Institute for College and University faculty and up to three graduate students. The Institute will take place July 1-30, 2014 in Milledgeville. Seminar faculty include Robert Brinkmeyer, Jr., Gary Ciuba, Doreen Fowler, Brad Gooch, Christina Bieber-Lake, and Virginia Wray. They will focus their seminars on issues related to race, religion, the idea of community, violence, and the ethics of personhood in a scientific age. The 25 NEH Summer Scholars chosen to participate will also spend a week working in the O’Connor Collection at Georgia College, the major collection of O’Connor’s manuscripts, papers, and library. Stipends of $3,300 will be awarded to those selected as part of the institute to cover the cost of housing and food during the four weeks in Georgia. Individuals interested in applying or in knowing more about this Institute should visit its website: http://www.gcsu.edu/nehoconnor.
