CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

NEH SUMMER INSTITUTE | JUNE 17-JULY 14, 2018

--

CULTURE IN THE COLD WAR: EAST GERMAN ART, MUSIC, AND FILM

This four-week NEH Summer Institute for College and University Teachers 
will explore the role of the visual arts, music and film in socialist 
modernity. Selected topics—such as censorship and artistic freedom, the 
role of the state and surveillance, and race and gender in art and 
politics—present a compelling historical perspective on issues being 
raised in classrooms today. Held at UMass Amherst, the 
inter-disciplinary program will break new ground in the study of culture 
during the Cold War, applying a sustained examination of the role of 
arts and artists to the case of East Germany. (NB: German language
skills are not required.)

At the Institute, participants will:

* Focus on learning and teaching about culture in the Cold War in 
dynamic seminar discussions

* Compare canonical and new approaches in art history, musicology, and 
German and film studies

* Critically assess a wide selection of primary and secondary materials 
for teaching

* Build lasting communities of inquiry and develop future projects


Faculty: Skyler Arndt-Briggs and Barton Byg (co-directors, UMass 
Amherst), Seán Allan (St Andrews), Joy Calico (Vanderbilt), April Eisman 
(Iowa State), Elaine Kelly (Edinburgh) and Johanna Yunker (UMass).

Participants will comprise a robust mix of college and university 
teachers in multiple disciplines, including film studies, art history, 
musicology, German studies, history, performance studies, and library,
museum and archival studies. Contingent faculty, independent scholars 
and advanced graduate students are welcome to apply, as are 
professionals working in cultural institutions, archives, and libraries.

The application deadline for NEH summer programs is March 1, 2018. 
Participants receive a stipend of $3,300 to help cover costs, and must 
be US citizens or have resided in the U.S. since March 1, 2015. See:
