The National Endowment for the Humanities funds numerous Summer Programs in the Humanities for School and College Educators. With respect to its seven seminars and seventeen institutes of Summer 2017 for college and university teachers, all of which are summarized here (be sure to subsequently click on the “College and University” tab so as to navigate away from the default “School” tab).
Application deadline: 1 March 2017.
Although no program this summer will focus expressly on the art and architecture of Portugal and Spain, the members of ASHAHS might wish to consider applying for these opportunities, which routinely bring together teachers from a range of backgrounds and interdisciplinary specialties. For instance, a program at Colgate University on medieval Jewish philosophy will cover the work of the Córdoba-born Maimonides, whereas a program at Indiana University bears the title of “Beyond East and West: Exchanges and Interactions Across the Early Modern World (1400-1800).” Those with expertise in al-Andalus and Islamic art history can consider applying to the program at the University of Hawaii, “Islam in Asia: Traditions and Transformations.”
Participants must meet the NEH eligibility criteria described, for example, in the PDF file available here and otherwise consult the information for each respective seminar or institute.
