Each summer the National Endowment for the Humanities supports a variety of
study opportunities in the humanities for faculty who teach American
undergraduates. Seminars and institutes are national, residential, and
rigorous. Designed to strengthen the quality of humanities teaching and
scholarship, they are led by some of the nation's outstanding scholars and
take place at major colleges and universities and archival facilities
across the United States and abroad.
Topics considered among the 20 seminars and institutes offered in the
summer of 2004 include the "Just War" tradition, opera, Aramaic studies,
the Seven Deadly Sins, Islamic history and culture, popular cartography,
and major figures such as Aristotle, Calvin, Shakespeare, and Dickens. For
a complete list of both seminars and institutes, go to the NEH Web site, or
phone (202/606-8463), or e-mail (<mailto:email@example.com)>firstname.lastname@example.org).
The listings contain seminar and institute titles and the means to contact
each director. Prospective applicants can request information from as many
seminar and institute directors as they wish but may apply to only two NEH
summer offerings. In response to a request for information, seminar and
institute directors will send a letter describing the content, logistics,
expectations, and conditions of that project. Each letter will be

books and miscellaneous expenses.
Requests for information and completed applications should NOT be directed
to the National Endowment for the Humanities; they should be addressed to
the individual projects as found in the listings. The application deadline
is March 1.
