University of Louisville's Department of Comparative Humanities has recently entered into an international exchange agreement with the University of Valle D'Aosta. Dr. Michael Williams's course HUM 596/505 Art of Place course is the first offering as part of this agreement. The course offers students the opportunity to study the relationship of ideas of "place" to the art and expression they inspire. After a semester's work at the U of L campus, students embark to the University of Valle D'Aosta in northwestern Italy. There, as the winter begins at the foot of the breathtakingly scenic Alps, they attend lectures from distinguished Italian faculty on the relationship of literature, travel, and cuisine to the Piedmont Region and to Italy and Europe as a whole. In spare time, they will explore the resort town of Aosta, as well as surrounding sites—medieval castles, Roman ruins, and the very modern city of Turin. Requirements are departmental approval, followed by the successful completion of Humanities 596/505: The Art of Place.
