Programmes include: Shakespeare's Globe, Northern Borders of Empire to the Making of the Middle Ages (including a major archeological project), Britain Past and Present, Understanding Ireland: Northen Perspectives, Scotland: Identity, Culture, and Innovation, Slavery and the Atlantic Heritage, Issues in Climate Change, and Contemporary Wales. The Summer Institutes will cover the majority of participant costs. This includes round-trip airfare from the US to the UK, tuition and fees at the host university/institution, accommodation and meals and in some cases a small daily allowance. These programmes have a competitve application process, deadline: Feb 23 (note although this seems far away, it is best if you start early!).
