The Newberry Library's Hermon Dunlap Smith Center for the History of 
Cartography is pleased to announce its 2010 NEH summer institute, 
"Mapping and Art in the Americas." The five-week institute, led by James 
Akerman (a geographer and Director of the Smith Center) and Diane Dillon 
(an art historian and the Newberry's Assistant Director of Research and 
Education) will trace the interplay between American art and mapping 
from the transatlantic encounter into the 21st Century. Guest faculty 
include specialists in art, art history, cartography, geography, 
philosophy, American history, map librarianship, and literary studies. 
The institute program of lectures, workshops, and discussions will 
encourage the 25 participants to cross disciplinary boundaries and move 
beyond regional and chronological specialties to explore the 
relationship between art and mapping in the Americas. Participants will 
also pursue their own research projects making use of the Newberry's 
rich humanities collections.

Applications are encouraged from college and university faculty residing 
and teaching in the United States, representing a broad range of fields. 
Qualified independent scholars and scholars engaged in museum work are 
also eligible to apply. A limited number of spaces are also available 
for full-time graduate students in the humanities. Successful applicants 
will receive a stipend of $3900 to help defray travel and housing expenses.

Completed applications must be postmarked no later than Tuesday, 2 March
