Each summer, the Department publishes a newsletter which includes reports on events throughout the past year, faculty news, updates from our overseas study programs, faculty profiles, and self-submitted news from alumni. Every other year, our faculty experts compile lists of the top 5 recent books and top 5 recent films in French and Italian, which is a great guide for alumni and friends to stay in touch with Italian and Francophone cultures. We welcome alumni news. Both short updates and ideas for longer articles can be sent to the newsletter editor, Isabel Piedmont-Smith. Alumni may also submit their news via a Class Note submission with the Alumni Association. We look forward to hearing from you!
