Application Deadline Extended: Rome Seminar 2016

Author: Amanda Skofstad

Italian Studies at Notre Dame invites junior faculty and advanced graduate students to apply for the sixth annual Rome Seminar--hosted by Italian Studies at the Rome Global Gateway--which brings together 30 scholars and students from diverse fields across the globe to reflect, discuss and train on a topic related to Italian studies.

Organized by an interdisciplinary team of distinguished professors at Notre Dame (Ingrid Rowland, Architecture and Classics; Heather Hyde Minor, Art, Art History & Design; Margaret Meserve, History; and Robin M. Jensen, Theology), the Rome Seminar 2016 will use the study of Jubilees, past and present, as a focus for tracking Rome’s changing fortunes as a religious and political capital, to discover how its mission as a destination for tourists and pilgrims has shaped the face of the city and the growth of its public institutions. 

Each year since 2011, the Italian Studies Program at Notre Dame, along with the Nanovic Institute for European Studies and in collaboration with various other departments and univeristies, has sponsored an annual seminar in Rome. This interdisciplinary seminar brings together graduate students and junior faculty members from Italy, the United Kingdom, the United States, and the rest of the world.
