A conversation with Elizabeth Horodowich, Professor of History, New Mexico State University, February 24, 2015 in Lane History Corner, room 302 at 6:00 pm.
Professor Horodowich teaches and researches early modern European history with a focus on sixteenth-century Italy and Venice. She is the author of Language and Statecraft in Early Modern Venice (Cambridge, 2008), A Brief History of Venice (Constable and Robinson, 2009), and has been the recipient of grants and fellowships from a variety of institutions, including The American Historical Association, The National Endowment for the Humanities, The Newberry Library, The Renaissance Society of America, and Harvard University’s Villa I Tatti. Her present research examines how sixteenth-century Venetian print culture and cartography played a crucial role in the invention of America. Her book manuscript in progress is entitled Armchair Travelers and the Venetian Discovery of the New World, and she is also co-editing a volume entitled The Discovery of the New World in Renaissance Italy.
