Subject:        Summer Fellowships -- Please Forward

Please forward the following announcement to any other lists where it is
likely to be seen by graduate students, especially those living or
studying in the southeastern U.S.  Thanks!

MELLON SUMMER SEMINARS IN CRITICAL PLURALISM

Graduate students in English and in other related humanities disciplines
(such as English education, history, comparative literature, philosophy,
cultural studies, etc.) are hereby invited to apply to participate in a
special seminar to be offered during the summers of 1998 at Auburn
University at Montgomery (Alabama).  This is the second in a series of
two such seminars.  Participants in last year's seminar were able to
take part in several publication projects (including a forthcoming book
on Frank O'Connor), and more such projects are anticipated for the
seminar to be conducted this summer.

The seminars, funded by a generous grant from the A.W. Mellon
Foundation, are designed to assist students who are in the midst of
working on extended writing projects, especially those (such as
dissertations) required for completion of graduate degrees.  Graduate
students (including adjunct faculty) at colleges or universities in
Alabama and in adjacent states are especially encouraged to apply.

Funding from the Mellon Foundation will cover the costs of in-state
tuition and will assist with costs of transportation and some other
expenses.  The amount of each student's grant will be determined mainly
by proximity and need.

The Mellon seminars at AUM are particularly designed to give graduate
students an opportunity to study and discuss the variety of interpretive
approaches now available to persons working in the humanities.  Many of
these approaches strongly conflict with one another and therefore pose
genuine challenges to anyone presently attempting to write on topics in
the humanities.

"Critical pluralism" is an approach that emphasizes the potential
usefulness of a variety of interpretive theories without giving
exclusive emphasis to any single point of view.  It encourages mutual
understanding and dialogue rather than hostile conflict between
adherents of different theories.  At the same time, it encourages the
proponents of various theories to approach their own viewpoints with
skepticism and rigorous analysis.

Professor Robert C. Evans of AUM's Department of English and Philosophy
will lead the seminar.  Graduate students interested in applying to
participate as Fellows are encouraged to contact him as soon as possible
by phone (334-244-3376), by e-mail (

 ), by
regular mail (English, AUM, Montgomery, AL  36117), or by fax
(334-244-3740).  The seminar will meet for four hours once a week on
Saturday afternoons during the ten-week summer quarter, which begins in
early June.  Participants will receive regular academic credit.
Additional information about AUM is available on the World Wide Web at
http://www.aum.edu.

Please apply ASAP for fullest consideration for the 1997 seminar.
Applications received by April 1 will have the best chance of being
funded this year.  Enrollment is limited to encourage vigorous
discussion.

to present their own interpretation of Shakespeare's plays. Sessions
will include discussion of: mediating performance, packaging expert
opinion, imaginative resolution of copyright problems, how Shakespeare
can subsidize the arts, and a glimpse at future prospects.
