Call for Participants: Summer School: Arts, Architecture and Devotional Interaction in England 1200-1600 (York 2014)

Call for Participants:
Arts, Architecture and Devotional Interaction in England, 1200-1600
NEH (National Endowment for the Humanities) Summer School
York, 8 June – 4 July 2014

The medieval-themed National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Seminars
and Institutes for College and University Teachers offer opportunities to conduct research in Europe (Rome, Florence,York). While most participants will hold faculty positions, directors may admit up to two graduate students in each seminar.

yorkThe NEH Summer Seminar on Arts, Architecture, and Devotional Interaction, 1200-1600 will be held in York, England from June 8 to July 4, 2014. The seminar is designed to provide college and university teachers with an extraordinary opportunity to explore how and why artwork and architecture produced between 1200-1600 engaged devotees in dramatic new forms of physical and emotional interaction. Building on the work of scholars over the past decade, we will examine the role of performativity, sensual engagement, dynamic kinetic action as well as emotional and imaginative interaction within the arts.

The seminar will take full advantage of its spectacular locale. Most seminar meetings will be held in churches or museums and we will be accompanied by visiting scholars who are specialists in the daily topics. The seminar is designed for all kinds of teachers in the humanities, not just art historians. You do not need a specialist’s knowledge of English Gothic art and architecture, but we expect that participants will have some scholarly engagement with European history, art history, theology, theater, music, or some other appropriate field. For further details, visit http://www.usu.edu/NEHseminar2014/
