Summer Institute: Empires and Interactions across the Early Modern World, 1400-1800

June 3, 2013

We are writing to announce an NEH Summer Institute for College and University Teachers, Empires and Interactions across the Early Modern World, 1400-1800, hosted by Saint Louis University, St. Louis, Missouri, June 3-June 28, 2013.

Co-directed by Ahmet T. Karamustafa (University of Maryland, College Park) and Charles H. Parker (Saint Louis University).

Application deadline: March 4, 2013

We invite applications for university faculty and advanced graduate students to participate as NEH Summer Scholars in a four-week program of lectures, discussions, field trips, and independent research. The Institute aims to help university teachers acquire expertise in the methods, problems, debates, and sources in early modern world history. This interdisciplinary Institute focuses on the emergence of powerful empires across Eurasia, which set in motion processes of exchange, inaugurating a new era in world history characterized by cross-cultural contact among peoples from around the globe. During the course of the four weeks, NEH Summer Scholars will work toward completing a project that will enable them to develop teaching expertise and/or a curriculum from a range of topics within the thematic framework of the Institute.
