The National Endowment for the Humanities has just released its call for faculty to take part in its annual Summer Seminars and Summer Institutes. A list of the seminars and institutes is included below. More detailed information is available here.

The deadline is March 3, 2008. Please contact Michael Nolan via e-mail or phone (7367) if you have questions.

Seminars - Each seminar includes fifteen participants working in collaboration with one or two leading scholars. Participants will have access to a major library collection, with time reserved to pursue individual research and study projects.

Institutes - 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.
