Dr. William C. Snyder, professor of English in the Saint Vincent College School of Humanities and Fine Arts, has been selected from a large number of applicants from throughout the United States to attend one of seven summer seminars for college and university teachers that are sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
NEH is a federal agency that each summer supports seminars and institutes at colleges and universities that make it possible for teachers from a broad variety of institutions to work in collaboration with peers and to study with experts in various humanities disciplines.
Snyder will participate in a seminar entitled Reassessing British Romanticism. This five-week program will be held at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, Nebraska. It will be directed by Stephen C. Behrendt, George Holmes Distinguished University Professor of English at the University of Nebraska.
Each of the 16 teachers selected to participate will receive a stipend to cover their travel, study and living expenses. They will work on both individual and collective research and teaching projects in the area of later 18th- and early 19th-century British literature and culture.
The seminar is intended to generate new research as well as new teaching materials and methods that will directly impact the work that seminar participants do in their classrooms at their home institutions.
