This NEH Summer Institute for School Teachers, is sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities and offered by The University of Texas at El Paso with the cooperation of Dr. Jessica Sheetz-Nguyen of the University of Central Oklahoma, Edmond, OK. This is a four-week experience for twenty-five NEH Summer Scholars in K-12 education, who are interested in making connections between their disciplines and the humanities, classics, history, and social sciences. It will take place in Rome, Italy, from July 6 to August 3, 2015. During the Institute we will study the city as we read in translation the works of Cicero and various English writers to experience how Rome served as a world intellectual center that contributed to the emerging national and global identity of the English people.
The deadline for applications is March 2, 2015. Applicants will be notified by March 30, 2015 and – if selected – must commit to the program by April 3, 2015.
