The development of undergraduate and graduate curricula in Manuscript, Rare Book and Archive Studies.

This is a proposal to launch a Committee on Manuscript, Rare Book and Archive Studies (MARBAS) at Princeton University. MARBAS is the initiative of a group of faculty and library staff devoted to teaching with original objects from global cultures before 1600, including manuscripts, documents, early printed books, papyri, coins, inscriptions and archives. Our goals are to bring students into contact with premodern texts and objects, to make specialized techniques (including digital methods) accessible to an expanded pool of instructors and non-specialists, to encourage comparison, and to make the use of physical evidence central to the humanities. We will help make the techniques for teaching with objects widely accessible, develop and distribute tools for undergraduate and graduate teaching with original artifacts, and make these tools scalable and replicable with or without physical access to special collections, whether due to geography, resources or travel restrictions.

Faculty curricular development workshops and public humanities programming to support the creation of an Asian American studies minor.

This project will develop an Asian American studies minor with accompanying public humanities programming at Chapman University in an initiative to broaden our humanities courses and to round out our new ethnic studies minors, with the aim of creating an ethnic studies/diversity General Education course. The goals are to augment the educational opportunities that we offer to students, demonstrating Wilkinson College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences' commitment to a 21st century humanities education. A multicultural education, emphasizing the diversity that exists in the history of the United States will reflect the surrounding Orange County, and larger Southern California communities, and is aimed towards strengthening community partnership and community-based research opportunities for students. This grant would assist us in building curriculum, programming, and community partnerships towards this goal.

A series of activities to incorporate primary documents from the Morehouse College Martin Luther King Jr. Collection into humanities teaching.

The Morehouse College Martin Luther King Jr. Collection provides an unparalleled intellectual resource in teaching across the humanities. Containing approximately 13, 000 original items belonging to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and housed in the Atlanta University Center Robert W. Woodruff Library, the collection offers a rich pedagogical tool for deep teaching and learning with primary source materials. This proposal comprises four components: 1) curriculum enhancement; 2) college-museum partnership; 3) digital resource development initiative; 4) public programming. A major element of the project entails deepening and expanding humanities instruction through the study and use of primary documents from the Morehouse College King Collection. Core faculty participants will develop project-based instructional modules to enhance courses in history, English, African-American Studies and Philosophy. The college-museum partnership will engage both faculty and museum educators.

A two-year program that would bring the history of William Holtzclaw, an important but overlooked black educator, to the institution he founded, to the region, and to the nation.

The topic, Black Man’s Burden: Holtzclaw and The Mississippi HBCU Connection, will allow us the opportunity to integrate the history of the institution into our humanities courses by developing summer faculty workshops; creating curriculum and teaching toolkits; and digitizing the work product. The founder, William H. Holtzclaw, utilized his connection to Booker T. Washington and Tuskegee to implement the Tuskegee Normal and Industrial Institute model to create educational opportunities for African Americans in Mississippi. Holtzclaw was a pioneer of the ‘sustainable agriculture’ movement.

Faculty development workshops leading to the establishment of a Museum and Heritage Studies Minor at Albany State University.  

The Department of Visual and Performing Arts at Albany State University seeks funding for the development of a multi-disciplinary minor in Museum Studies. The minor serves the common good by promoting diversification of museum fields and providing training for staff and trustees of regional organizations through open workshops with guest lecturers. Additionally, the program has the potential to supplement the regional workforce with student interns during field studies experiences. ASU is the largest HBCU in the state and geographically located to extend these opportunities to a more diverse and underserved population. The need for this initiative is two-fold: to prepare African-American students for fields involving museology, preservation and archiving, and to create career paths for humanities majors while extending opportunities in the humanities to students working in other areas of study. Finally, the Museum Studies minor is part of a larger, ongoing objective to promote the holdings of the university and the cultural institutions in the area.

Curricular improvements to an oral history course focused on African American women from the rural and small-town South, as well as archival preservation of interviews with these community elders.

In August of 2002, students at Spelman College were introduced to The SIS Oral History Project, a new course that would: (1) open the lens of age in studies of history and literature; (2) identify oral history as a major methodology for research in the humanities; and (3), through student-conducted interviews, give voice and visibility to African American women elders of the South. That “new course” is, today, a demanding project that transforms teaching and learning in the humanities. The project meets criteria for NEH funding for Humanities Initiatives at HBCUs in the following ways: (1) it strengthens students’ skills in writing, critical thinking, oral articulation, and research across disciplines; (2) through a partnership with AUC Robert W. Woodruff Library Archives Research Center, it insures that project research will be preserved and disseminated for use in humanities courses across the nation; and (3) it produces age-conscious scholars for the twenty-first century.

A project to digitize and provide intellectual context for the papers of African-American writer Margaret Walker Alexander (1915-1998), which are housed in the university's Sampson Library.

The Jackson State University Alexander Research Center (the Center) and the H. T. Sampson Library (the Library) request a two-year $100,000 grant to implement training acquired during Ford Foundation workshops on digitizing the Walker archives for greater access by students, researchers, and teachers. It is the largest single archive of a twentieth-century African American woman writer, Margaret Walker (Alexander) [1915-1998]. The Center has a 110- linear-foot Walker literary archives and the Library has a 22-linear-foot Walker administrative archives. Walker was an award-winning poet, novelist, and influential educator. NEH funding will help digitize 40 percent of the Walker archives and use CONTENTdm to store and manage them. Three humanities scholars and two high school teachers will annotate the archives and write a ten-page essay, a five-page curriculum guide, and a print and online brochure to supplement class room instruction in secondary and post secondary education.

Development at Kean University of a new History Lab and undergraduate history curriculum focused on the life and times of William Livingston, first elected governor of New Jersey.

“MakeHistory@Kean: William Livingston’s World” is a three-year project to develop the Kean University Department of History curriculum around the concept of a History Lab. Using untapped archival resources and facilities of Kean, Liberty Hall Museum and the Liberty Hall Academic Center, undergraduates will generate a portfolio of original historical research to be shared with a broad public through talks, exhibits, websites, lesson plans, and other genres. Students will reconstruct and disseminate political, intellectual, and social worlds of William Livingston, first elected governor of New Jersey, signer of the U.S. Constitution, and builder of Liberty Hall, the estate on which Kean University now sits. The development of this curriculum writes an important chapter in American History, prepares history majors to compete in the 21st-century job market, and culminates in a 5-year BA/MA degree in History and Public Humanities.

Enhancement of required undergraduate humanities courses at Passaic County Community College through engagement with local cultural organizations in Paterson, New Jersey.

Passaic County Community College’s proposed project entitled "Discovering Paterson: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Teaching History and English Literature" will improve coursework in History and English Literature by integrating important themes such as Industrialization, the Abolitionist Movement, and Immigration into course content. Using the early industrial city of Paterson, New Jersey, as a context, students enrolled in U.S. History I, U.S. History II, and English Literature will learn about key historical, social, and literary movements. The project is significant because it extends learning beyond the classroom environment while connecting students with vast historical, cultural, and literary resources in the surrounding community. Key partner organizations will include the Passaic County Historical Society, the Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park, the Paterson Public Library, the American Labor Museum, and the Paterson Poetry Center.

A two-year project on the digitization and examination of abolitionist materials to be included in experiential learning and curriculum development.

Hidden Archives is a collaborative project between the University of California, Santa Barbara, California State University-Northridge, and Howard University that digitizes and researches a collection of abolitionist materials held at UCSB while introducing underrepresented students to archival research and the digital humanities. Although both archival and digital skills are necessary to address crucial topics regarding the history of race, enslavement, and protest, the fields of book history and the digital humanities remain exclusionary to scholars of color. Hidden Archives addresses such concerns through collaborative research between faculty, undergraduate, and graduate students. The project focuses on the Ballitore Collection, a group of 18th- and 19th-century Quaker materials. By examining the collection with a diverse research team, we make it available for scholars, students, and the public while shaping a generation of researchers attuned to questions of power and absence.

A two-year project to develop 10 new courses and a certificate program in comic studies.

Scholars who study comics and graphic novels have long recognized their power to perpetuate harmful stereotypes; but also, more recently, their capacity to challenge injustice. Through engagement with issues like racial discrimination, gender inequality, sexual identity, and immigration, the ever-changing medium of comics is a change-maker. Humanists are well-positioned to trace that change and, through scholarship and teaching, make meaning of its power. Comics@SDSU seeks $150,000 for a two-year initiative to 1) develop ten new courses that will deepen and expand our humanistic comics curriculum, 2) use these courses to populate a proposed certificate in Comic Studies, and 3) support workshops that bring scholars to campus to energize comic studies at our Hispanic Serving Institution. The humanistic approach to the study of comics that we will cultivate through workshops, courses and a certificate program will empower thousands of students to visualize and manifest a more just future.

A five-year cooperative agreement to develop and implement new humanities pathways in undergraduate education.

The Teagle Foundation proposes a cooperative agreement with the National Endowment for the Humanities to revitalize the critical role of the humanities in undergraduate general education. The “proof of concept” that has inspired this proposed initiative is Purdue University’s Cornerstone Integrated Liberal Arts certificate program, which introduces incoming college students to significant works of literature and philosophy and enables them to draw connections between the humanities and their professionally oriented programs of study through thematically organized clusters of general education coursework. We propose a high-profile grant-making initiative, complemented by annual faculty professional development institutes, to provide institutions with a strong mix of incentives and support to embark on genuine reform that places the humanities at the center of general education.

To develop a four-course interdisciplinary minor in Hispanic Agriculture Studies for students in Texas A& M University’s College of Agriculture & Life Sciences.

We propose to develop an interdisciplinary minor in Hispanic Agriculture Studies that will offer Texas A&M students a deeper recognition of the social and economic role played by Mexican Americans in the state’s agricultural production and food culture. The curriculum will highlight Mexican American contributions to the demographic vitality and economic viability of Texas by integrating humanities (Spanish, sociolinguistics, discourse analysis) and agricultural sciences (soil, crops, animal husbandry, horticulture, nutrition). Aimed at majors in Agriculture but with broad appeal, the minor will develop linguistic and cultural skills through experiential and service learning activities. It will expose students to the state’s multi-layered social history. Four interdisciplinary courses will be developed about the land, food, peoples, and narratives of Hispanic Texas. They will be based on Open Educational Resources and framed within the multiliteracies pedagogy Learning by Design.

The development of curriculum and resources for a new certificate in textual science, focused on cultural heritage recovery.

How should the humanities respond to the dual threat posed by global warming and terrorism to cultural heritage worldwide? Are the imaging technologies developed to recover the Archimedes palimpsest and restore lost works to the canon enough to safeguard the future of the past? Is science alone the answer? Textual Science: A Curriculum for Cultural Heritage Recovery offers a two-fold solution. First, it defines a new discipline combining the traditional skills of the humanistic scholar – paleography, codicology, bibliography – with imaging-, material-, and computer science. Second, drawing on the traditional strengths in optics, imaging, and humanities of both the University of Rochester and Rochester Institute of Technology, whose scholars are at the forefront of cultural heritage imaging, this proposal aims to formalize a curriculum for Textual Science through a joint UR – RIT certificate program for undergraduates at the 22 institutions of the Rochester Area Colleges consortium.

The development of a humanities-driven undergraduate STEM program.

While STEM has made room for STEAM (with the Arts) or STREM (with Reading) or STEMM (with music), the humanities remain still only a subtle presence in STEM education. What if we were to flip this paradigm? What if, instead of only "timbre-ing" STEM, the humanities were to drive its communication, its approach? This project implements a humanities driven STEM (HDSTEM) program in the TTU Honors College that includes 1) a First Year Experience team-taught course that introduces students in their first semester to the idea that the humanities are the impetus for human innovation; 2) a sustained program of HDSTEM courses that shape the chosen majors of students; 3) co-curricular workshops and lectures that put interdisciplinarity into action; and 4) a Summit Experience team-taught course that challenges students at the end of their 4 years to appreciate the interrelatedness of disciplines and the complexity of problems using the vocabulary and the grammar of the humanities.

Two-day conferences in October 2009 and April 2010, for fifty-four educators each, to strengthen the use of Picturing America images in the teaching of core subjects, primarily in high schools. (Ashbrook)

The Newberry Library proposes to host two Picturing America School Collaboration Project Conferences, which will provide one hundred and eight teachers with access to each other; to experts in art history, history, literature, and geography; and to Chicago's rich local resources in American art. Our conferences will take "Interpreting the American Landscape" as a capacious and inclusive organizing theme. Our conference sessions will explore the role of landscape imagery in shaping national identity, tracing the shift from a nineteenth-century emphasis on visions of pristine wilderness and rural landscapes to the twentieth-century's urban and industrial scenery. The conferences will be held at the Newberry Library on October 23-24, 2009, and April 16-17, 2010. The nationwide target audience will be secondary-level history, language arts, and art teachers whose schools already have received the Picturing America portfolio.

The development and teaching of a first-year undergraduate seminar, designed primarily for honors students, to explore the purpose of art.

This NEH Enduring Questions course delivers an open and sustained inquiry into the question, What is Art For?, across a range of historical periods and linguistic traditions. The freshman-level honors course, designed for a sixteen-week semester, is interdisciplinary in emphasis and open to students from all majors. The course develops the range of the question, What is Art For?, through a number of significant contexts that provide meaningful ways of addressing it. Each section of the course—On Truth; On Power; On Character; On Beauty and Culture—draws from among works of literature, drama, philosophy, the visual arts, music, and film that together offer a plurality of perspectives on the ways in which people throughout history have understood the purpose of art.

The development of an undergraduate course on the question, How is the world ordered?

Joanne Robinson, an associate professor of religious studies, notes that while human beings are constantly ordering things, they seldom reflect on that activity. "Yet concerns about order and the threat of disorder have pervaded Western thought and practice." Hence Professor Robinson develops a course to address such questions as "Is order inherent in nature or is it a human construct (or a mix of both)? When is order constructive and when is it restrictive? What assumptions form the foundations for classifying and categorizing things and ideas?" The first section of the course addresses how humans have explained the order they find in the natural world. Readings include creation stories from the Hebrew Bible, ancient Greece, Zoroastrianism, and Native American traditions. These are studied in conjunction with excerpts from Lucretius's On the Nature of Things and Charles Darwin's The Origin of Species, Italo Calvino's essay "Crystals," and Stephen Strogatz's Sync: How Order Emerges from Chaos in the Universe, Nature, and Daily Life. In the second section, the class looks more closely at taxonomies of the natural world, including Aristotle's Categories, Isidore of Seville's Etymologies, either Bartholomew of England's On the Properties of Things or the medieval Physiologus, and Jorge Luis Borges's Book of Imaginary Beings. For a contemporary treatment, the class studies Carol Yoon's Naming Nature: The Clash Between Instinct and Science. In the third section, the students consider current discussions of classification and category through a reading of E. O. Wilson's Consilience: The Unity of Knowledge and David Weinberger's Everything is Miscellaneous: The Power of the New Digital Disorder. "These texts, taken together, complicate the question of order in ways relevant to students' (presumably) technology-focused lives." Professor Robinson notes that while she has looked at the question before, NEH support allows her "to break out of the disciplinary ordering of my academic life [in religious studies] and delve into other disciplines, such as cognitive science, library history and science, linguistics, anthropology, biology, and philosophy." The course opens with an exercise comparing the systems of ordering in the printed telephone book with the on-line ordering of such information; it also explores visual means of ordering. The students develop a public website on systems of order for the university community.

The training of student veterans to lead statewide public discussions for veterans and civilians on the experiences and commemoration of war through material culture.

Bringing War Home enables participants to develop a deeper understanding of the material world of modern war and its incorporation into our families and our efforts to memorialize and commemorate these conflicts. We will do so in several ways. First, through community conversations, aimed at bridging the divide between combatant and civilian memories of war, of Tim O’Brien’s classic story of the Vietnam War, The Things They Carried. Second, by co-teaching a web broadcast class on the material culture and history of 20th-century war that trains students especially those who are veterans to collect and document material culture narratives. Third, via public events featuring workshops on material culture preservation and oral history, where veterans and families are encouraged to bring objects from their own collections for documentation and inclusion in our digital archive. Finally, through community discussions based on the object stories collected in the digital archive.

An eight-month preparatory program for veteran curator-artists and museum studies graduate students, followed by their collaborative facilitation of public discussion programs on veterans’ artistic responses to war experiences.

The University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), in partnership with the emerging Veteran Art Movement (eVAM), proposes an NEH Dialogues on the Experience of War program that incorporates academic study, curatorial practices, and focus group discussions culminating in veteran-led discussion forums at the second National Veteran Art Triennial and Summit at the Chicago Cultural Center and Hyde Park Art Center in Chicago, Illinois. Through this partnership, UIC and eVAM will develop a comprehensive program that prepares a cohort of predominantly Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) veteran artists/community leaders who served in the Global War on Terror (GWOT) as humanities discussion leaders.These veteran fellows will study an interdisciplinary cross-section of humanities sources that illuminate the connections and contradictions between the eighteenth and nineteenth-century US “Indian Wars” and twenty-first-century “GWOT” across time and space.
