Why you should go

We will study the revival of classical culture and values and the place of human beings in the world, as we experience Rome (and environs) and visit Florence. Rome – the eternal city and caput mundi (world capital) – will provide the backdrop for our study of the Renaissance, the Protestant Reformation, the discovery and conquest of the Americas, and the birth of scientific method.

Meet the professor

Stephanie Jed

Stephanie Jed is a professor of Italian literature, whose interests in Italian history and culture range from Dante to the present. Her inspiration to pursue a Ph.D. in Italian literature came from her own college experience of study in Rome at the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies. During graduate school, she had an opportunity to live and study again in Rome as a Fulbright fellow and has returned to Rome many times over the years for research. She was the first instructor for the Revelle in Rome Global Seminar in 2008. Currently the Chair of the Department of Literature, she has been a faculty member of the department since 1981.

Her books include: Chaste Thinking: The Rape of Lucretia and the Birth of Humanism  (1989) and Wings for Our Courage: Gender, Erudition, and Republican Thought (2011). She is currently exploring the interface between Renaissance and contemporary research in language, movement, gesture, embodiment, and creativity. Her hobbies/passions include Italian language, folksongs, walking in Rome, the politics of food, and Aikido (a martial art in which she is a 2nd degree black belt).
