  1. Ciao a tutti! I have been seeing a lot of questions in the grad admission results, especially regarding interviews. I decided to start this thread to create a space to ask those questions and share admissions results/experiences with each other. To get things started, I saw a lot of questions asking about NYU interviews. I can only speak for myself. I was interviewed on Jan 22, and I have not heard anything since. Judging by the results, it seems no one else has heard back either, but they must be doing a second round of interviews. Can't wait to hear from everyone! Hope you'r
  2. Has anybody heard back from any school for PhDs in Italian or Comparative Romance Studies? So far I have a Skype interview with UT Austin (Italian program), and Duke (Comparative Romance Studies) is funding me to go visit campus and meet with faculty (is this a good sign or should I chill out?). I still have not heard back from Brown, Notre Dame, and U Oregon. Any comments or tips are welcome! I have not seen much about Italian programs on the forum and it's not helping 😁
  3. Bonjour/Ciao ! I'm an incoming French Ph.D. candidate, and one of the stipulations of my Ph.D. is that I need to demonstrate a basic reading proficiency in two languages other than French. I have chosen German and Italian for a variety of reasons. I'm hoping to take my exams within the first two/three semesters, and have been told that I can either (1) take classes or (2) go the more common route, which is self-study through a guide book. I have a pretty rudimentary knowledge in both languages. I'm hoping to do the equivalent of a "double-minor" in my program, which will take up a ton of
  4. Hello everyone, surprisingly, there's no thread for Italian this year and I thought I create one. I applied for 4 PhD programs and still waiting for a reply. I had two interviews a few weeks ago but nothing since. Do you people want to share your experiences as well? Cheers, P. EDIT: Yes, I am freaking out and I have a bad feeling about this whole thing.
  5. Hey everyone, I'm hoping to get some insight or guidance from those of you who either are, or have been, in my position. I will attempt not to drone on endlessly with this, so please hang in there! I finished my BA in Classics in Chicago last year, and have just about (two more weeks) finished the Post-Bacc Program in Classics at UCLA (did well, feel confident in some strong letters of recommendation). I will be applying to PhD programs this fall. From the get-go, I always intended on applying solely to Classics programs, but the Post-Bacc Program has served me very well in tailoring my resear
  6. Can anyone recommend an intensive, rigorous summer Italian course, preferably located in Italy? This summer I want to improve my spoken and written Italian (currently at the A2 level) but most language schools in Italy are geared towards retirees and tourists... not exactly what I'm looking for!
  7. Any recommendations for PhD programs in 16th- and 17th-century Italian art? I have already have an MA in Art History and solid language skills. I know that in the past five years a number of scholars in Early Modern art have retired, especially in the Baroque and the 17th century, so I am also considering working with scholars who focus on Medieval or Renaissance Italian art. Of course, funding is also a concern. Thoughts?
  8. Hi all! I am a first-year student studying art history, and a requirement of my university's program is that I study two different languages. I am planning on taking a course this summer so I can put lots of focus into it. I am currently taking French, and am between taking either Italian or German this summer. I am interested in going to graduate school as well (and know that a lot of schools require reading knowledge of certain languages) and am most interested in the Renaissance and Baroque eras as of yet, so that's why I am focusing on Italian and German. I'm split be
  9. Hello, all! I am an Art Historian seeking advice from others who have studied, or focus in, the Italian language. Can anyone recommend an intensive, rigorous summer Italian course, preferably located in Italy? This summer I want to improve my spoken and written Italian (currently at the A2 level) but most language schools in Italy are geared towards retirees and tourists... I've heard the five-week course at the University of Bologna is strong, but have not been able to find reviews online.
  10. Hello, all! I am an Art Historian seeking advice from my peers who have studied Italian. Can anyone recommend an intensive, rigorous summer Italian course, preferably located in Italy? This summer I want to improve my spoken and written Italian (currently at the A2 level) but most language schools in Italy are geared towards retirees and tourists... I've heard the five-week course at the University of Bologna is strong, but have not been able to find reviews online.
  11. Would someone be so kind as to recommend an Italian Philosophical Dictionary on par with Waibl and Herdina's one for German Philosophy? Here's why: I was annotating the English edition of a book originally in Italian that has an unexpectedly large amount of Italian Philosophical terms. I'm not familiar with several of them (most of which seem to originate with Gallupi). Neither is anyone else I know. I can read Italian tolerably (though I am by no means proficient). I hope no one finds posting this in Italian instead of Philosophy offensive as I'm finding in the Anglophone world
  12. Hello, I was wondering if anyone knows any good comparative literature programs that specialize in Italian--Italian will be my main foreign language, Spanish will probably be my secondary language if not Latin. I'm mostly looking at Northeastern schools since I'm from there-- the ivies obviously, uconn, umass amherst-- but I haven't been able to find which schools are best for which languages, if there's even a distinction among them. Thanks
