Applications are due March 1st for the Newberry Library's 2017 NEH summer institute:

Making Modernism:

 Literature and Culture in Twentieth-Century Chicago, 1893-1955.

The 4-week institute will explore Chicago's contribution to the modernist movement, with particular attention given to literature and the visual arts. The program of lectures, discussion, and site visits will consider  the dimensions of a Chicago "style," from the turn of the century through the Second World War.

Making Modernism will  provide 25 summer scholars with a special opportunity to explore Chicago through both the Newberry's vast collections and the experience of the city itself.

Directed by Liesl Olson, the institute will feature visiting scholars in the fields of literature, history, art history, print culture, and African-American studies.  Applications are encouraged from college and university faculty in all disciplines. Spaces are available for non-tenure track/adjunct faculty. Successful applicants will receive a stipend of $3,300 to help defray travel and housing expenses.  Applications are due March 1, 2017.
