The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Summer Seminars and Institutes offer tuition-free opportunities for higher education faculty to study a variety of humanities topics. Stipends of $1,200-$3,300 help cover expenses for these one- to four-week programs. This summer NEH is supporting two programs that may be of particular interest to members of this group. To learn more and apply to these programs please follow the links below to the respective project websites.
<h3>Colonial Experiences and Their Legacies in Southeast Asia</h3>
This multidisciplinary summer institute will explore the multiple ways in which Southeast Asian societies responded to colonial presences and how the legacies of these experiences shaped subsequent efforts to forge national identities, envision independent political futures, and imagine new relationships between the state and its citizens.
<h3>José Martí and the Immigrant Communities of Florida in Cuban Independence and the Dawn of the American Century</h3>
This Institute will study the rise of the U.S. as a global power in the early 20th century as a consequence of its intervention in Cuba’s War of Independence, a conflict known in U.S. history as the Spanish-American War (1898), but more accurately called the Spanish-Cuban-American War (1895-1898). An overlooked aspect of this intervention was the role played by the Cuban immigrant communities in the U.S., particularly in Florida’s unique and vibrant cigar towns such as Ybor City, now the historical district of the City of Tampa. It was here that many of the tenets of Cuban nationhood, or Patria, revealed themselves to its most important intellectual leader, José Martí.
