NEH Summer Seminar

Re-Enchanting Nature: Humanities Perspectives

A three-week NEH Summer Seminar for School Teachers located at Carroll College in Helena, MT and Yellowstone National Park!

July 5-23, 2021. 

Due to COVID-19, we have postponed the seminar until July 2022. (Dates and information to come).

Join us as we examine our relationship to nature amid the beauty of the Rocky Mountains and Yellowstone National Park. The seminar will draw upon philosophical, literary, historical, and cultural perspectives to explore and evaluate how we think about the natural world. We will study stories, ideas, and practices that shape the interaction between human and non-human nature. We hope the seminar will deepen your appreciation for humanities perspectives on nature, in ways that open valuable dialogue with the natural sciences.  

Application Information Coming Soon!

Note regarding COVID-19: NEH Summer Seminars are designed as funded as residential projects and the information on this website reflects that fact. We are proceeding as planned. Applicants should be aware, however, that NEH may call for projects to adopt a virtual or hybrid format as they continue to monitor events in the coming months. If so, we will provide guidance to selected applicants.
