Since 2000 the New Bedford Whaling Museum (NBWM) has partnered with the Melville Society Cultural Project (MSCP) in programming for the annual Moby-Dick Marathon and in maintaining the Melville Society Archive in the Museum’s library. The two organizations have produced two Summer Institutes for School Teachers with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).

Literature Section’s Senior Lecturer Wyn Kelley was co-director of the 2020 Summer Institute and one of six Melville scholars from the MSCP who served as lead faculty of the Institute.
