Mystic Seaport Museum (Mystic, CT 06355-1946)
Glenn Gordinier (Project Director: February 2015 to May 2018)
The American Maritime Commons

A five-week institute for twenty college and university faculty on America’s maritime history.

Mystic Seaport's Frank C. Munson Institute of American Maritime Studies seeks NEH funding to host a five-week summer 2016 institute for college/university faculty titled "The American Maritime Commons." The Institute builds on the Museum's successful record of five previous NEH institutes. Aligning with the new NEH "Common Good" initiative, seeking to connect the study of the humanities to the current conditions of national life, "The American Maritime Commons" will employ interdisciplinary perspectives on American maritime studies, with an emphasis on recent social, cultural, and ecological approaches and current research. The Institute will consist of a series of seminars led by 12 visiting scholars and co-directors Dr. Glenn Gordinier and Dr. Eric Roorda. Participants will enhance their course offerings through intensive studies, dialogue, and reflection on the influence of maritime activities on U.S. history and culture.
