Projects Planned for Summer 2012:
17 DAY PROGRAM: June 19 - July 7, 2012 OR July 9 - 25, 2012 (if enrollment grows, we may offer both dates to accommodate all students, with a decision made by February 1, 2012). This Program is for graduate students or graduating seniors only. This is a multimedia summer program in a "small Italian town involving the creation of a web documentary. This program begins in Florence with a two-night hotel stay, an opening dinner, and a walking tour of Florence that starts at the Piazza del Duomo, continues to the Piazza di Republica, on to the Palazzo Vecchio and the Uffizi Galleries. From there we will walk to the famous Ponte Vecchio and end at the Mercato Centrale. On the third day we will take the train or bus to Cagli, Italy where the bulk of our teaching and fieldwork will take place. In Cagli students will share apartments with full-cooking facilities and a washing machine for laundry. In addition we will have a possible daytrip to the Renaissance city of Urbino and there will be weekend travel available to Rome, Venice, local seaside towns, or relaxing and absorbing the charms in the medieval city of Cagli. The 17 day program has online components including readings and postings preparing for Italy and a post Italy reflection paper.
