James F. Miller Professor of the Humanities Nicholas Smith has been awarded a $108,252 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Supported by the Division of Education Programs at NEH, this five-week seminar will bring 16 college and university teachers to Lewis & Clark in the summer of 2014 to engage in scholarship about Socrates.

The seminar offers participants the opportunity to deepen their knowledge and understanding of Socrates, build an engaged community of scholars, develop professionally, and work together to be better scholars and teachers of the humanities.

Smith, who has been publishing scholarly and educational works on Socrates since 1979, will direct the project and mentor participating faculty. Participants will live on campus, participate in group meetings and activities, present their own research, and conduct additional research at Lewis & Clark and nearby libraries.
