Maybe I’ll apply. I’ll write for more information. What is an NEH Summer Institute?
Institutes provide intensive collaborative study of texts, topics, and ideas central to undergraduate teaching in the humanities under the guidance of faculties distinguished in their fields of scholarship. Institutes aim to prepare participants to return to their classrooms with a deeper knowledge of current scholarship in key fields of the humanities.
Keep this in mind the next time proposals come around (and they will be coming around) to gut the funding for the NEH.
