In a book on “Machiavellian politics,” I will argue that in the Discourses he uses Rome to criticize Sparta as the model of republican government. But having displaced the classical “aristocratic” notion of republicanism with a nascent model of checks and balances, he acknowledges that Roman conquests destroyed freedom everywhere. Instead of trying to conquer their neighbors, he urges his Florentine republican readers to form a federation with them. Machiavelli thus presents a new understanding of republican politics later adopted in the U.S. The “armed prophet” he praises in the Prince nevertheless remains an ever present political option and threat.

My book places Chicago at the center of a new modernist geography. Based upon archival research, my book focuses on writers, artists, institutions, and cultural advocates during the early twentieth century when Chicago was a center for the production of modernist art and literature. I examine key publications launched in Chicago like Harriet Monroe's POETRY magazine and Margaret Anderson's LITTLE REVIEW and I also take account of equally important yet overlooked figures, many of them women, who helped expose modernism to a wide public audience. These figures (among many) include Alice Roullier, a curator who coolly negotiated radical and challenging exhibits, and Fanny Butcher, the longtime literary editor of the Chicago Tribune. I consider why Chicago's "middlebrow" readers embraced the most experimental writers and artists of the era. I show how Chicago has always maximized connections between art and industry, becoming a city where lines of track merged to meet and make modernism.

Research and writing leading to publication of a literary and historical study about the translation, reception and popularity of works by American author Ernest Hemingway in the Soviet Union, from the 1930s to the 1990s.

Ernest Hemingway’s translated works enjoyed immense popularity in the Soviet Union. In the 1930s, the Soviet government had hoped to co-opt Hemingway as a supporter of the Soviet experiment, but his true impact was realized in the 1960s as a counter-culture figure representing the American ideal of personal liberty. Even so, Hemingway was afforded in 1971 a “Soviet biography” fitting for a Soviet writer. Of particular interest are the ways in which Soviet cultural appropriations of American cultural figures played a role in the ultimate collapse of the Soviet Union. This work explores the Soviet aspects of the translation, interpretation and consecration of Hemingway. The Soviet Union first accepted Hemingway for their own political and social agenda (antifascism), only some thirty years later to find that he represented the ideals of personal freedom that Soviet citizens desired, undermining the official positive pronouncements about the collective.

Research and writing leading to publication of a biography of Pulitzer-prize winning American author and pioneering organic farmer Louis Bromfield (1896-1956).

The Road to Malabar is the first major biography of the Pulitzer Prize-winning American author and pioneering organic farmer Louis Bromfield (1896-1956). Bromfield rose to prominence in 1920s Paris among a set of legendary expatriates such as Gertrude Stein and Ernest Hemingway. But after World War II, he radically changed course, investing his fame and fortune into the daring project of bringing sustainable agriculture to America. From his model farm in rural Ohio, Malabar, Bromfield sounded an early alarm about harmful pesticides and fought for an agriculture that would enrich the soil and protect the planet. Based on unpublished letters and memoirs, this book not only unearths a lost American icon, it also sheds light on the little-known origins of sustainable farming. By situating that movement in its cultural context, the book shows how organic agriculture was just as much a response to the shocks of the 20th century as the literary modernism of Bromfield’s Lost Generation peers.

Hiring of a consultant to undertake a preservation assessment and develop an emergency preparedness plan, and purchase of archival storage supplies for Special Collections and University Archives. The collections include local history, personal papers, named collections, and nearly 5,000 rare books that range from a 16th-century edition of "The Aeneid" to first editions of Ernest Hemingway's novels, all of which support research, education, and lifelong learning among students, faculty, staff, alumni, and members of the community.

The department of Special Collections and University Archives at the Pepperdine University Libraries seeks $6,000 in funding to conduct a preservation and emergency preparedness consultation. The University will hire a consultant, preservation expert Julie Page of the California Preservation Program, to assess Pepperdine University’s Special Collections and University Archives. The focus of the assessment will be the environmental conditions of the space and an emergency response plan. While also surveying the physical materials included in the collection, Ms. Page will comment specifically on collection maintenance, storage conditions, recommended treatments, supplies, and enclosures. The recommendations provided will inform the development of both short-term and long-term policies and practices related to the care and preservation of materials, including the proper implementation of an environmental monitoring system.

The development and implementation of an oral history exhibition on the Vietnam War at the Dubuque Museum of Art; retention of 10 positions.

This series of humanities programs asks, “how do we tell the truth in war?” The experience centers on an exhibition of Associated Press photographs that documented and changed history. DuMA will partner with the Grout Museum of History and Science and the University of Dubuque to train student Veterans to record and share the oral histories of Vietnam Veterans. The students will create an exhibition inspired by their experiences. Museum guests will also explore an installation of artifacts inspired by the acclaimed book The Things They Carried. Concurrent exhibitions add perspectives including the war photography of Dubuque journalist Bob Woodward and Ron Testa, an official Navy photographer. Lectures, film screenings and book discussions will expand guests understanding of the role of artists in telling the story. Plans include conversations with Tim O’Brien and art historian Teri Van Dorston and a screening of Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods.

The partners in this grant application (NWCCD/Sheridan College, Wyoming Humanities Council, Wyoming Institute for Humanities Research and the Ucross Foundation) are proposing an initiative to celebrate Ernest Hemingway in Wyoming. Hemingway will act as a springboard or cartographer of imaginative geographies that will help us establish and deepen connections among communities in Wyoming. Centered on the continued relevance of Hemingway as both writer and icon, several targeted activities will take advantage of Hemingway’s connections to the state to link and thus create humanities communities along what we are dubbing the Hemingway Highway. The result of these efforts will be a durable humanities network which includes the state’s one university, eight community colleges, public libraries, historical societies and arts organizations.

The Hemingway Legacy Initiative, a portfolio of projects that seeks to preserve Hemingway’s Idaho home and library through educational outreach and a literary residency.

The Hemingway Legacy Initiative is a partnership between The Community Library and The Nature Conservancy(TNC) to honor the life and work of Ernest Hemingway and Sun Valley’s regional history. The Community Library is the lead on the project; TNC is working to gift the house and related artifacts to the Library. The Hemingway Legacy Initiative has three main components. Preservation: We will grow, preserve, and promote the collection of books, photographs, papers, oral histories, and artifacts that relate to Hemingway’s life as it intersects with the American West. Educational Outreach: We will create multimedia educational materials to share artifacts and stories from Hemingway’s home and his time in Idaho with a broad audience of schoolchildren and the general public. Literary Residency: We will protect Hemingway’s Ketchum home as a nature reference library where writers, artists, and scholars can do creative work.
