NEH Summer Seminar deadline approaching

Dear Courtiers,

A gentle reminder that deadline for our NEH Summer Seminar on the trouvères is quickly approaching, and that there are still places open. When I first announced this in December, we didn’t have the very-attractive flyer you’ll find here, nor was our website fully developed; two reasons to further consider and pursue this opportunity. The last lyric seminar combining language, poetics, paleography and music was offered – to the best of my knowledge – in 1987. That the NEH is eager to fund a medieval topic like this is both exceptional and a mark of the quality of what we are offering.

All best wishes,

Chris Callahan
Bill Hudson
