This three-week summer seminar based in the archives at Vassar College will bring together sixteen college and university professors interested in or influenced by the poetry of Elizabeth Bishop (1911-1979) and her circle. These may include Bishop scholars in the field of the literature, history and culture of the Americas, and, more broadly, scholars focused on interdisciplinary inquiry, gender and LGBTQ studies, and literature and archival research. The goals of the seminar are to extend and deepen our knowledge and understanding of Bishop, her circle and literary history; understand key theoretical and critical debates surrounding the archives and literary history work collaboratively to introduce and develop new methods of interdisciplinary teaching and research in the humanities; strengthen the academic discourse surrounding the ethics of archival research; and develop a deeper understanding of how social issues affect artistic expression.

Summer scholars will have time to work in the archives on independent projects for publication and to revise or develop new syllabi for teaching, as well as collaborate on a proposed volume of essays that focuses on the poet and her archives. Summer scholars (including non-tenure track faculty members) will be selected as per NEH guidelines and receive a $2700 stipend to offset the cost of travel, meals and housing.
