Two one-week Landmarks workshops for eighty teachers that will use the Hudson River as a focus for the study of nineteenth-century intersections of art, culture, commerce, and nature.

The Hudson River is an American landmark of immeasurable historical depth and significance, and has aptly been called "America's River." The workshops we propose will explore American history and culture of the 19th century by focusing on the Hudson River as a site where art, culture, commerce, and nature collide. On one hand, the River is "conquered" in the 19th century by steam power, the Erie Canal, industrialization, and population growth. On the other, painters such as Thomas Cole and writers such as Washington Irving endowed the River with romantic, transformational power, the power to overcome human force. Each day of our program will include a lecture by a renowned scholar, a site visit, and a workshop with a Master Teacher where participants will work in small groups to develop lesson plans related to their teaching area. The workshops will be appropriate for middle and high school teachers of social studies, history, English, humanities, and environmental studies.

Two one-week workshops for eighty school teachers that survey the Hudson River in an interdisciplinary study of modernization in nineteenth-century America.

Two one-week workshops for eighty school teachers that survey the Hudson River in an interdisciplinary study of modernization in nineteenth-century America. Ramapo College offers a workshop on the Hudson River as a case study of the scope of modernization in nineteenth-century America. The study of art, literature, and architecture, alongside the developments of commerce, industry, and tourism that emerged on the nineteenth-century Hudson, reveal the diverse ways in which Americans navigated the waterway. This approach also brings an interdisciplinary perspective to history and a humanities focus to environmental studies. Each day allows for a specific topic with lectures, readings, and site-based activities tied to a region of the river. The workshop begins by considering the mouth of the Hudson as estuary and economic gateway; participants survey New York Harbor by boat, walk the commercial district of Wall Street, and read Walt Whitman's poetry at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge. Farther up river, they discuss short stories by Washington Irving; visit his home, Sunnyside; and compare this modest structure to Lyndhurst, its Gilded-Age neighbor and home of financier Jay Gould. They study the development of the steamboat and Erie Canal for the purpose of industry and commerce, and the Hudson River School paintings of Thomas Cole as romantic depictions of nature. Finally, a morning boat trip-enhanced by readings in period guidebooks-enable participants to interpret the river's dramatic geology, iconic vistas, and environmental change through a nineteenth-century lens. Project directors Stephen P. Rice and Meredith Davis are scholars of American studies and art history, respectively. Their expertise is supplemented by Elizabeth Hutchinson (art history, Columbia University), Roger Panetta (Curator of the Hudson River Collection, Fordham University), Judith Richardson (English, Stanford University), Thomas Wermuth (history, Marist College and Director of the Hudson River Valley Institute), and Stephen Stanne (Hudson River Estuary Program, Cornell University). In addition to place-based writing exercises, a session entitled "Teaching Your Place" assists teachers in the translation of the Hudson River workshop to local sites.

Two one-week workshops for seventy-two school teachers that use the Hudson River for a study of modernization in nineteenth-century America.

This workshop focuses on the Hudson River as a case study of the scope of modernization in nineteenth-century America. By focusing on art, literature, and architecture alongside the developments in commerce, industry, and tourism that emerged on the nineteenth-century Hudson, the workshop reveals the several ways in which Americans navigated the waterway. This approach also brings an interdisciplinary perspective to history and a humanities focus to environmental studies. Each day allows for a specific topic with lectures, discussions, readings, and site-based activities tied to a region of the river. Participants begin by considering the mouth of the Hudson as an estuary and economic gateway; they survey New York Harbor by boat, walk the commercial district of Wall Street, and read Walt Whitman's poetry at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge. Farther up river, they discuss short stories by Washington Irving, visit his home, Sunnyside, and compare this modest structure to Lyndhurst, its Gilded Age neighbor and home of financier Jay Gould. They study the development of the steamboat and Erie Canal for the purpose of industry and commerce, and the Hudson River School paintings of Thomas Cole as romantic depictions of nature. A session on "Race, Labor, and the Landscape" illuminates the stories of African Americans in the Hudson River Valley. Finally, an afternoon boat trip--enhanced by readings in period guidebooks--enables participants to interpret the river's dramatic geology, iconic vistas, and environmental change through a nineteenth-century lens. Project directors Stephen P. Rice and Meredith Davis are scholars of American studies and art history, respectively. Their expertise is supplemented by Elizabeth Hutchinson (art history, Columbia University), Judith Richardson (English and American studies, Stanford University), Myra Young Armstead (history and Africana studies, Bard College), Thomas Wermuth (history, Marist College and Director of the Hudson River Valley Institute), and Stephen Stanne (Hudson River Estuary Program, Cornell University). In addition to place-based writing exercises, a session entitled "Teaching Your Place" assists teachers in translating the Hudson River workshop to other local sites.

Endowment for publication subventions and an award program in musicology as well as fund-raising costs.

The American Musicological Society seeks an NEH challenge grant of $240,000, which with a 4:1 match will yield $1,200,000. These funds will endow four publication-related initiatives of the Society. The bulk of the funds ($900,000) will create a new subvention supporting the publication of first books by young scholars, whose work often represents the cutting edge of scholarly research, but whose careers are often at their most fragile or challenging point. The remainder will go primarily to existing publication subvention programs, supporting musicological books more generally ($125,000) as well as a monograph series sponsored by the Society ($100,000). These subventions aim to optimize the quality of the best scholarly books on music while keeping their prices affordable. Finally, we propose a new award for books on music in American culture ($50,000), a vital area of musical research that appeals to the broadest literary and musical public.

Uncovering Islam's formative impact on the nation's literature, this project traces covert genealogies of Arabic and Persian influence, extending from Revolutionary beginnings to the Civil War. Complementing NEH's Bridging Cultures initiative, this monograph excavates portraits of our most iconic authors, while also giving voice to unknown Muslim writings penned in the young republic. During the proposed year of work, the author will complete archival research for this book and develop a polished typescript. Two months of targeted library visits will allow for the remainder of the award period to be reserved for textual analysis, translation, and core writing.

To complete a book on Essay Serials in America from Franklin to Irving. Following the tradition established by Addison and Steele's serial publications, The Tatler and The Spectator, Benjamin Franklin began the tradition in America with his Dogood Papers (1722), and Washington Irving ended it with Salmagundi (1807-1808). Between 1722-1808 American newspapers and magazines carried more than 50 essay serials, some written anonymously, others by major writers. Among important literary genres in colonial America none has been so neglected as the periodical essay.

Implementation of a traveling exhibition that explores the influence of Spanish art and culture on American painting during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Americans in Spain (working title) is the first major exhibition to present to a large audience the widespread influence of Spanish art and culture on American painting during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Organized by MAM and the Chrysler Museum of Art (CMA), the exhibition is currently scheduled to travel to two venues. Curators at both museums have worked closely with esteemed scholars to examine an underexplored moment in history when many of America’s most prominent artists traveled to Spain for training. Americans in Spain focuses on a time when both countries were undergoing significant shifts in power, culture, and worldviews. The exhibition sheds light on the how the political, economic, and cultural conditions affected how the artists experienced Spain and shaped their work. This close look at the artists’ sojourns brings light to an understudied aspect of American art and provides a rich opportunity to expand the understanding of American visual culture.

18 months of stipend support (2-4 fellowships) per year for three years and a contribution to defray costs associated with the selection of fellows.

The NEH Fellowship program at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens (ASCSA) gives U.S. scholars the opportunity to conduct research in Greece and utilize the excellent resources available on its campus. As the ASCSA’s most prestigious fellowship, earmarked exclusively for post-doctoral scholars to carry out research in the humanities, the NEH awards are a critical component of the School’s overall fellowship program. Each fellow contributes to the diverse academic community at the ASCSA, with research being conducted on a broad range of topics in the humanities. The research of our NEH fellows results in publications, lectures, and conferences that reach a wide audience of scholars, students, and the public in the U.S. and abroad. This proposal requests funding for 20 fellowship months per year for three years. The length of the proposed fellowships will range from 5 to 10 months depending on the selected applicants.
