I am not sure what happened, but the "forwarded message" appears to have 
been edited out of the note received. The link to this Newberry Library 
NEH program is here: http://www.newberry.org/mappingnature . A short 
description, from the site:


The five-week institute led by James Akerman (a geographer) and Kathleen 
Brosnan (an environmental historian) will examine in a Pan-American 
context the complicated, contradictory, and contested ways in which 
humans mapped and conceived their place in nature through history. Guest 
faculty include specialists in the history of cartography, environmental 
history, geography, US history, and Latin American history. The 
institute program of lectures, workshops, and discussions encourages 20 
participants to cross disciplinary boundaries and move beyond regional 
and chronological specialties to explore the relationship between nature 
and mapping in the Americas. Participants will also develop their own 
research projects and explore unfamiliar primary materials, including 
the Newberry’s rich holdings of cartography, geography, art, history, 
literature, and the history of printing from the 15th to the 21st
