This information may not be as connected as I think, but several strands we have discussed make connections across the curriculum. These summer institutes may fit the bill. Some may provide graduate credit.

--------------------------------------- The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) has announced its residential seminars & institutes for teachers during summer 1999. For *K-12 teachers*, 20 seminars are offered -- studies of the journals of the enlisted men who traveled with Lewis & Clark; comparative African literature; poetry of modern America; Beowulf & the heroic age; studies of epic literature, the Holocaust, & contemporary Latin American fiction; & others.
Institutes for K-12 teachers will take place in settings that range from the Oregon Shakespeare Festival to Harvard University to Senegal, on topics such as the Arab world & the West, the use of maps as texts to study world history, personal identity & freedom in African-American autobiography, & the history of technology in the United States.

For *college & university teachers*, 23 NEH seminars & institutes will focus on topics such as nature & society in Africa & the Americas, Roman Egypt, the philosophy of experimental inference, Black film studies, nineteenth-century Spanish realism, the Cold War, & others.

Applications are due March 1. Information & application forms for specific seminars & institutes are available from their directors. For complete lists seminars & institutes (& the director for each), please see: (K-12) (higher ed.)

Have a great day,
Sheryl A. McCoy
