NEH Summer Institute for College Teachers on "Modernity, Early Modernity
and Post-Modernity in Japan"--Applications are invited from college or
university teachers in the US for an NEH Summer Institute to spend five
weeks (June 16-July 20, 2002) at the University of Southern California
examining the concepts of modernity, early modernity and post-modernity as
they have been applied to the study of Japan. The Institute will explore
the extent to which these concepts, widely used in discussions of Europe
and North America, are applicable to an East Asian setting. The Institute
will also discuss early modernity, modernism and post-modernism as these
have been applied to the study of Japanese art history. Institute faculty
