Study abroad with CHID in Rome, Budapest and Istanbul — Winter 2014!

“Legacies of Empires: Power and Diversity in Rome, Budapest and Istanbul”

Program Director: Ruggero Taradel, French & Italian Studies

Co-Instructor: Erin Clowes, CHID

Application deadline: July 3rd, 2013

The goal of this program is to reveal how our world of nation states is a very recent and fragile historical phenomenon. For many centuries, vast empires ruled and determined the lives and destinies of diverse peoples. Many of the ideas, ideals, ideologies and policies of the Roman, Byzantine, Hapsburg and Ottoman Empires are still relevant to understanding the often contradictory and unresolved issues of today’s world. This program will allow students to investigate these ideas and relationships in the sites where they once flourished.

Students can learn more – and apply – via our website:

**Note on security issues: we are closely monitoring the security situation in Turkey, and if it is not deemed safe for travel in Winter 2014, we will reroute that portion of the program to Vienna.
