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 music and the history of travel in early modern Europe and the colonial Americas in the period from 1500 to 1800.
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, musicology, literature, and theater studies.
Guest faculty: Linda Phyllis Austern (Northwestern University), Jeanice Brooks, (University of Southampton), David J. Buch, (University of Northern Iowa), Drew Edward Davies (Northwestern University), Craig A. Monson (Washington University in Saint Louis), John A. Rice (University of Michigan), Louise K. Stein (University of Michigan), Daniel Vitkus (Florida State University), Lisa B. Voigt (Ohio State University), Tim Youngs (Nottingham Trent University).
