Newberry Fellowships


The Newberry Library's long-standing fellowship program provides outstanding scholars with the time, space, and community required to pursue innovative and ground-breaking scholarship. In addition to the Library's collections, fellows are supported by a collegial interdisciplinary community of researchers, curators, and librarians. An array of scholarly and public programs also contributes to an engaging intellectual environment.

A Muscovite in Italy

I have just posted to my personal web page a "travel account" highlighting some materials and thoughts from my recent trip to Italy, where we visited Milan, Florence, the hill-town of Cortona, and Rome. This makes no pretense at scholarly profundity (and may in fact seem a bit underwhelming....), but I think at least some of the material should interest readers of H-EarlySlavic.  Among other things, there is material on mosaics, on portraits, and on architecture, and some thoughts about the hoary issue of Muscovy's relationship to the Renaissance in the West.
