The chairperson of the Humanities Division at West Virginia University at Parkersburg is participating in a six-week summer National Endowment for the Humanities seminar.
Nancy Nanney is attending the seminar at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The seminar, which focuses on literature and values, is interdisciplinary in nature. It attracts faculty in literature, drama, political science, history and philosophy from universities across the country.
In addition to discussing theories and texts related to the seminar topic, participants also engage in individual research in areas of special interest. Dr. Nanney is studying a spectrum of international literary and historical works that address the Sino-Japanese conflict of 1947-1945.
The NEH seminar provides participants with the opportunity to enrich and revitalize their understanding of significant humanities ideas, texts, and topics. Participants can then share information and insights gleaned from the seminar with colleagues and students at their home institutions as well as encourage the development of new humanities projects.
