September 22, 2023
Congratulations to Dr. Tim Marr, who has been awarded an NEH grant as a co-director for “Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick and the World of Whaling in the Digital Age”! The Summer Institute will take place from June 23-28 and July 7-19, 2024, and build on the respective strengths and successes of the in-person 2018 and online 2021 Institutes, each of which hosted 25 K-12 teachers from all around the United States. Participants will be empowered for bold and immersive journeys with their students into Moby-Dick that dramatize the imperative value of the humanities as an essential force of social revitalization.
