America Engages Russia, Circa 1880-1930: Case Studies in Cultural Interaction

A three-week summer institute for college and university teachers to examine cultural interactions between the United States and Russia in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

The New York Public Library (NYPL) seeks a grant of $145,796 from the National Endowment for the Humanities for an 18-month grant to develop and present a Summer Institute entitled "America Engages Russia, Circa 1880-1930: Case Studies in Cultural Interaction." The proposed three-week Summer Institute will include 25 university teaching faculty, research librarians, and museum educators, and will facilitate the consideration and investigation of, and reflection upon, the implications of the various forms of cultural engagement that occurred between the United States and the Russian Empire/Soviet Union in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The proposed Institute will feature leading specialists addressing four major themes, and enable the investigation of the cross-cultural dynamics that impacted political, diplomatic, commercial/scientific, artistic, and religious developments and identities that existed in the United States and Russia/Soviet Union during this era.
