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 or email
