CFParticipation: The Visual Culture of the American Civil War, An NEH Summer Institute

This two-week institute supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities will focus on the Civil War’s array of visual media—including the fine arts, ephemera, and photography—to assess how information and opinion about the war and its impact were recorded and disseminated, and the ways visual media expressed and shaped Americans’ understanding on both sides of the conflict. Institute members will participate in seminars led by noted historians, art historians, and archivists; take part in hands-on sessions in museums and archives; and attend new media lab workshops.
