The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has invited Northwestern University to submit one proposal for up to $225,000 to fund a year-long John E. Sawyer Seminar series related to multi-disciplinary and comparative research on historical and contemporary topics of major scholarly significance: “The seminars . . . bring together faculty, foreign visitors, postdoctoral trainees, and graduate students from a variety of fields mainly, but not exclusively, in the arts, humanities, and interpretive social sciences, for intensive study of subjects chosen by the participants.”  Of the 15 – 20 proposals expected, the Foundation plans to fund 10 Sawyer Seminars. The seminar series may be planned for the 2020-21 academic year to allow time for a planning year once the Foundation selects (in September 2019) the groups to be funded.
