This is a reminder that March 2 is the deadline for applications for the
NEH Summer Seminar for College and University Teachers, “Disease in the
Middle Ages,” which will run in London (U.K.) this summer from 5 July to 8
August 2009.  The Seminar is fully funded and provides 15 participants
with a stipend of $3800.  As of this writing, the British pound is at its
lowest rates against the dollar in over two decades.

Application information, as well as further details about the Seminar, can
be found at http://medievalseminar2009.asu.edu
<http://medievalseminar2009.asu.edu/>  or by e-mailing the Seminar
directors at [email protected].

Eligibility: We encourage applications from humanists, social scientists,
and basic scientists across the disciplines who are interested in
exploring issues of health, disease and disability in premodern societies.
Although the Seminar is focused on Europe and the Mediterranean basin,
scholars wishing to pursue cross-cultural comparisons are welcome. As an
NEH-sponsored event, the Seminar is open to U.S. citizens, permanent
residents, or foreign nationals who have been residing in the United
States or its territories for at least the three years immediately
preceding the application deadline. The Seminar is intended for college
and university faculty in U.S. institutions, though applications will be
considered from unaffiliated scholars and other academic professionals in
the U.S.
