ED250: Intellectual Curiosity and the Scientific Revolution (WI) / Prof. Mike Taber / The goal of the course is to examine scientific discoveries from the Age of Discovery to Postmodernity that advanced the sub-disciplines in science and the subsequent influences on European and American educational systems. As a writing intensive course, the emphasis is on writing to learn through analysis of historical biographies combined with museum experiences. Set in Florence, Italy this course examines the great scientific advances in geography, archeology, astronomy, chemistry, medicine, physics, mathematics, and industry from the 17th Century to the 21st Century, and how those advances transformed western educational systems, a critical element in nation building. [CC Writing Intensive] ____

IT200: Italian / Eight weeks of intensive Italian classes taught at Linguaviva in Florence. Courses are designed for students who wish to improve their Italian language either for general use or for their study or work. Teachers use a range of teaching techniques including whole class teaching and group and pair work. When students have successfully completed your course you can ask for a Linguaviva certificate showing the length of the course and the language level achieved. [Meets CC Language Requirement] ____

RE 200/HY 200: Martyrs & Saints / Prof. Pamela Reaves / Based in Rome, Italy, this course centers on martyrs and saints in the Christian tradition. We will begin by exploring the development of martyrdom in the early church, particularly in the context of the Roman Empire. Specifically, through an examination of imperial interests and spaces, including the Roman arena, we will consider evidence for persecution. Through early Christian accounts of and reflections on martyrdom, we will also consider how early Christians both rely on and resist imperial culture. In addition, attention to Christian beginnings in Rome will involve a study of the legacies of the apostles Paul and Peter, including Roman Catholic memorials at the Vatican, most prominently St. Peter’s Basilica. We will also examine transitions from martyrdom to sainthood, related, in part, to an imperial turn to favor Christianity during the fourth century under the emperor Constantine. Our consideration of martyrs and saints will also reflect on representations of gender and related attributions of authority. Our historical study will be especially attentive to ways in which Christian communities construct and memorialize-through literature, art, and space-martyrs and saints. This approach will align with our focus on material culture, including sacred spaces and visual representations, in Rome and the surrounding regions. Site visits may include attending regional festivals devoted to celebrations of saints; such experiences will offer further insight on the persistence and development of traditions over time, from antiquity to the present.
