Subject:        NEH Summer Seminar at Amherst College

Summer Seminar on Punishment, Politics, and Culture

Amherst College will host a National Endowment for the Humanities Summer 
Seminar for K-12 teachers and current full time graduate students who 
intend to pursue a career in K-12 teaching, from June 27-July 29, 2011. 
The seminar will be directed by Austin Sarat of the Departments of 
Political Science and Law, Jurisprudence and Social Thought. It will 
examine three questions: What is punishment and why do we punish as we 
do? What can we learn about politics, law, and culture in the United 
States from an examination of our practices of punishment? What are the 
appropriate limits of punishment?  

The application deadline is March 1, 2011. Information is available at 
http://www.amherst.edu/go/neh. If you have any questions regarding the 
seminar or the application process, contact Megan Estes at (413)542-2380
