Subject: NEH Summer Seminar

This summer I'll be offering an NEH Summer Seminar for College Teachers at
the Public Record Office, Chancery Lane, London. The subject is "Biography and
the Uses of Biographical Evidence (England, 1630-1830). The seminar will run
from 29 June - 15 August, and the stipend is $3600. Those interested in more
information and an application form (due 2 March) can e-mail me or write me at
the English Department, Univ. of Rochester, Rochester, NY 14627. NEH has cut
the publicity budget, so I'd appreciate your spreading the word. Description:

This seminar will be devoted to the exploration of theoretical issues and
practical problems inherent in writing biography and using biographical

Readings and discussion topics will be shaped to some extent by the
interests and projects of the seminar members, and some attention will be
given to the relationship between current critical practices and biographical
decisions. THose I hope to involve in the seminar will come from several
groups of seventeenth and eighteenth-century specialists: those who have
decided and perhaps even embarked on writing biographies; those who use
extensively the kinds of social, political, religious, and historical evidence
that biographers do; those engaged in writing theoretical books and articles
on the art of biography; those who regularly teach biography. In fact, I would
be happy to consider anyone who believes the seminar would be useful and
interesting to him/her.
