Summer Institutes

The summer institutes will be similar in format to the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Summer Seminars in the Humanities. Our primary emphasis will be the professional development of more junior scholars, especially graduate students and recent PhDs. Confirmed participants will be expected to read sources from a select bibliography in advance of the summer institute. During the institute, time will be set aside for several distinct types of activity: seminar colloquia, working groups, individual research, and participant presentations.
