The Early Modern Studies Programme is pleased to announce a new way to study the Renaissance at King’s in May 2015. Early Modern Art, Literature and Politics (EMSP 2510) will enable students to live and study for a month abroad in Florence, Italy.
Renaissance art historian Dr. Jannette Vusich says this course will provide students with a profound knowledge of the civic, ecclesiastical and domestic spheres of Renaissance life through an interdisciplinary analysis of contemporary objects, spaces and texts.
Students earn six credit hours in a uniquely designed immersion course in the birthplace of the Renaissance. Art, literature, philosophy and politics of Early Modern Italy (1280 – 1580) come to life through daily visits to the city’s historic churches, palaces and museums such as the Uffizi and Palazzo Pitti.
Florence, the capital city of Italy’s Tuscany region, is ranked by Forbes as one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
Application forms will be available online and from the Early Modern Studies Programme office December 1, 2014. Course description, deadlines, fees, travel arrangements and accommodations are available online (click here).
