National Endowment for the Humanities
Applications to Conduct an NEH Seminar or Institute 
in Summer 2001

Application Deadline: March 1, 2000.

Each summer the National Endowment for the Humanities supports faculty
development through residential seminars and institutes. These
projects are designed to provide teachers from across the nation with
intensive study of important texts and topics in the humanities.
Seminars and institutes are intended to foster excellent teaching by
encouraging collegial discussion of humanities topics within
close-knit scholarly communities. They also promote active
scholarship in the humanities in ways suited to teachers at all levels
from grade school through college.

Now is a good time to begin drafting a proposal to direct a seminar or
institute, or to contact a colleague whom you think might be
interested in developing a project. The NEH is supporting 27 projects
for school teachers and 22 for college and university faculty in the
summer of 2000. If you or your colleagues would like to apply to
offer a seminar or institute in 2001, please be in touch with one of
the NEH program staff listed below to discuss your application.
Program staff can answer questions, provide samples of successful
applications, and comment on an informal draft. Staff can usually
help anticipate questions that are likely to arise in the review

The application guidelines can be found on the NEH Web site at Printed copies can be
obtained by e-mailing If you have any questions or
suggestions, please do not hesitate to call on the staff at the NEH
Division of Education Programs. For general questions, call Joyce

"Protosociology occupies an important position in the European
intellectual scene, bridging philosophy, economics, sociology and
related disciplines. Its volumes on rationality bring together concerns
in all these topics, and present an important challenge to the cognitive

Donald Davidson, Berkeley (USA)

"Protosociology publishes original papers of great interest that deal
with fundamental issues in the human and social science. No academic
library is complete without it."
Nicholas Rescher, Pittsburgh (USA)

"Protosociology has been remarkably successful in publishing interesting

work from different tradition and different disciplines and, as the
title signals, in giving that work a new, eye-catching slant."
Philipp Pettit, Canberra, Australia

"Protosociology is a truly premier interdisciplinary journal that
publishes articles and reviews on timely topics written by and for a
wide range of international scholars. The recent volumes on rationality
are remarkable for their breadth and depth. Protosociology would be a
great addition to any library."
Roger Gibson, St. Louis (USA)
