Individual Projects and Meetings

We ask Summer Scholars in this National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Institute 2017, American Material Culture: Nineteenth-Century New York, to choose case studies drawn from their own teaching and/or research for further development. We anticipate that Summer Scholars will be able to utilize their Institute training to broaden and deepen their practices of interpreting material culture in the context of their own work. In consultation with Project Directors and guest faculty, Summer Scholars will advance their projects over the course of the program. In addition to one-on-one advisory sessions with individual instructors, participants will share their ideas with and receive feedback from the group. Bard Graduate Center will host an Institute wiki to facilitate ongoing and future exchanges and collaborations.
