NEH Summer Institutes for College Teachers

A few weeks ago, we posted links to 2015 NEH Summer Institutes and Workshops for K-12 Teachers. This list highlights programs of interest for college and university teachers:
The Cross-Border Connection: Immigrants, Emigrants, and Their Homelands (UCLA)
American Material Culture: Nineteenth-Century New York (Bard Graduate Center)
City of Print: New York and the Periodical Press (New York City College of Technology)

Teaching the History of Modern Design: The Canon and Beyond (Drexel University); Regina Blaszczyk is among the instructors, focusing on design for mass markets.
The full list of summer programs can be found here. Each workshop is developed by the hosting institution(s), and application must be made directly to the program in which one wishes to participate. Accepted applicants will be provided with a stipend to help defray expenses. The application deadline for the programs is March 2, 2015.
