From August 26 to September 9, 2001, Venice International University, with the support of The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation and the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Venezia, is offering a Summer Institute in the Humanities on "The Private and the Public in Venice: Absorption, Integration and Reinvention, 700-1450" for advanced graduate European and American students and recent Ph.D.s in the history and culture of Venice.
The program is conceived as involving a commitment to two-week study sessions in the summers of 2001-2002. In the intervening year students will undertake a research project that will connect some aspect of Venetian history or culture with their own research; they will present the results at the second two-week session in 2002. The same financial conditions will apply for the second summer and the same faculty will be involved.
The Institute will pay travel (at current rates of exchange: up to an equivalent of $350 for European students; up to $1000 for American students), room and board, and a small stipend ($15 a day) for students accepted.
During the first two-week session in 2001 the program will consist of lectures and site visits in the mornings; afternoons will be free for research, visits in the city, and study.
Lectures will be held in English. The faculty will consist of some of the foremost experts on Venice, including professors E. Concina, Università Ca’ Foscari di Venezia, G. Cracco, Università degli Studi di Torino, D. Howard, Cambridge University, L. Lazzarini, Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia, S. Moretti, Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia, R. Mueller, Università Ca’ Foscari di Venezia, M. Piana, Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia, D. Pincus, National Gallery of Art, Washington, D. Romano, Syracuse University, J. Schulz, Brown University and The National Gallery of Art, Washington, A. Tenenti, Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris, G. M. Varanini, Università di Trento, R. Vaugham Schofield, Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia, W. Wolters, Technische Universitaet, Berlin.
The students will be housed on the premises of Venice International University on the island of San Servolo, and all teaching with the exception of site visits will occur there.
The program is open to 20 students (10 American students and 10 European students) who have been accepted by the Admission Board.
