The Newberry Library, Chicago, IL
In this interdisciplinary summer institute our goal will be to listen—literally and metaphorically—to travel. College and university teachers from across the nation will come together to explore the intersections between the history of travel and the history of music in early modern Europe and the colonial Americas.
The Institute will accept 19 college or university teachers and 3 advanced graduate students as NEH Summer Scholars, who will participate in a four-week series of lectures and discussion sessions led by scholars in the fields of history, literature, musicology, and theater studies.
Participants will receive a stipend of $3,300 to help defray living expenses while attending the institute.
This institute will be held at the Newberry Library in Chicago and is funded by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
