Greetings from the Chair
Dear Alumni and Friends of the Italian Department:
As I enter the third year of my term as Chair of the Italian Department, I am delighted to share news and updates from current and former colleagues and students.
We continue to grow as a department. Following our 2013 hire of an early modern Mediterraneanist, Assistant Professor Pier Mattia Tommasino, in 2014 we conducted a successful search that resulted in the hire of a specialist in the Mediterranean post-1700. Assistant Professor Konstantina Zanou joined us in September of this year after a year-long fellowship at the Paris Institute for Advanced Studies. These new hires expand our course offerings in exciting ways, adding a global perspective to our full coverage of medieval, Renaissance and modern literature and culture.
We look forward to sharing your news and thoughts with us, so please send us your posts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jo Ann Cavallo
Professor of Italian
Chair (Fall '14- Spring ’17)
