Dear Colleague,

I'd like to invite you to consider applying for "Magazine Modernism,"
a Summer Seminar for College and University Teachers sponsored by the
National Endowment for the Humanities.  The seminar will be directed
by Sean Latham and hosted at the University of Tulsa from 12 July to
6 August 2010.

This broad-ranging, interdisciplinary seminar will bring together
modernist scholars and digital humanists to explore the emerging
field of periodical studies.  As a group, the seminar will explore
the this vigorous new intellectual field that thrives both within and
between the disciplines of literature, history, art, print culture,
and sociology. At the same time, we will experiment with cutting-edge
tools in the digital humanities. Throughout the seminar, you will
have access to McFarlin Library's renowned Special Collections as
well as the Modernist Journals Project, the Journal of Modern
Periodical Studies, and the James Joyce Quarterly. Drawing on these
resources, you'll be able to pursue interdisciplinary research and
pedagogical projects of your own choosing using a diverse array of
primary print and digital materials. In intensive seminar sessions,
we'll draw on one another's unique strengths while also working with
the expert scholars, teachers, and archivists who will be on hand. By
the seminar's end, you'll will emerge with new ideas for teaching and
research on magazines and with a richer sense of modernism's rise in
the English-speaking world.

Information about the seminar (including a schedule of events and
speakers) as well as eligibility requirements can be found online at
Participants will receive generous stipends designed to defray the
costs of housing, travel, and research while in residence.  For the
first time, some slots in the seminar will be specifically set aside
for graduate students whose research intersects with the seminar's topic.

For more information or if you have any questions, please feel free
to contact me at 
<<sean-latham at utulsa.htm>sean-latham at utulsa.edu>.  And please do
share this message anyone you know who might be interested.  The
deadline for application is 2 March 2010.
