NEH 2010 Summer Programs in the Humanities for Teachers

Years ago I participated in several extraordinary NEH summer learning experiences. The first was a 6 week children’s literature seminar at Princeton University with the brilliant U.C. Knoepflmacher; it did much to change the direction of my life.  A couple years later I did a folklore institute at Bank Street College (where I first met Jack Zipes) and then further on I did one more seminar on Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast at Rochester University with Russell Peck. (whose Cinderella bibliography is amazing)  All three were wonderful, intellectually stimulating experiences.  And so I encourage teachers, librarians, and other qualified folk to look at this summer’s offerings and consider applying.

A taste of what is available:
