Voyaging in the Wake of the Whalers: The 38th Voyage of the Charles W. Morgan

Implementation of a long-term exhibition, a website, and public programs at the Mystic Seaport Museum that examine the broad economic, social, and cultural impact of whaling.

Mystic Seaport requests a Chairman's Level implementation grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to fund a suite of online, onsite, offsite, and onboard public programs and exhibits that will provide new national insight into universal and important humanities themes, through an interdisciplinary exploration of historic and contemporary American whaling. The Museum and its partners will explore through this project how, when, and why dominant American perceptions of whales and whaling took their dramatic turns. The project will raise public awareness in New England and nationwide about the role the whaling industry played in the development of our nation’s multiethnic make-up, our domestic economy, our global impact and encounters, and our long-standing fascination with whales. And it will promote thought about the nation’s whaling heritage, and how it continues to shape our communities and culture.

In the Wake of the Whalers: American Identity and Worldview as Shaped by our Whaling Heritage

Planning for a long-term exhibition with traveling components to various New England ports, a website, and program activities on board a historic whaling ship.

Mystic Seaport requests a one-year (October 2011 – September 2012) “Bridging Cultures” planning grant of $74,853 from NEH to plan “In the Wake of the Whalers: American Identity and Worldview as Shaped by our Whaling Heritage.” This major national public programming initiative will revolve around the Museum’s most important artifact, the 1841 whaleship Charles W. Morgan, and the vessel’s groundbreaking “38th Voyage” to strategic ports of call along the northeastern seaboard. The NEH-funded planning phase will involve a two-day scholar charrette, front-end and formative audience surveys, and two planning charrettes with advisors from stakeholder organizations representing each of the proposed ports of call. "In the Wake of the Whalers" will develop the intellectual content and creative delivery systems to engage a national audience in exploring how American identity and worldview has been shaped by maritime endeavors.

Greenmanville: Investigating the Underground Railroad and Social Reform in a New England Maritime Community

Planning for a reinterpretation of the George Greenman house and the Seventh Day Baptist Church in Greenmanville, a neighborhood of Mystic, Connecticut.

Mystic Seaport requests $38,030 planning grant over one year (Apr 2010 - Mar 2011) for the proposed re-interpretation of two historic structures connected with the community of Greenmanville. This once thriving 19th-century maritime community occupied the riverfront property where Mystic Seaport is now located. The Greenmanville Seventh Day Baptist Church (1851) and George Greenman House (1839) are significant places in the economic, religious, social, and political history of this community, but their stories have never been fully told to the public. The proposed planning phase will entail: further content and best-practices research trips to local, regional, and national archives and museums; formative evaluation focus groups; scholarly charrettes; and internal workshops with project team members. This work will allow us to strengthen the supporting evidence for our stories and test our plans with a range of intended audiences. The Museum proposes a cost sharing of $38,472.
