Commencement Forum — Nicholas Brown and the Roman Revolution of 1848-1849

Saturday, May 27, 2023

9 a.m. – 10 a.m.

Digital Scholarship Lab, Rockefeller Library

Join David Kertzer, Paul R. Dupee Jr. University Professor of Social Science, professor of anthropology and professor of Italian studies, and Allison Levy, director of Brown University Digital Publications, for a born-digital book presentation. “Nicholas Brown and the Roman Revolution of 1848-1849” revolves around a trove of the titular American diplomat’s recently rediscovered correspondence — one of the most important collections of original manuscripts linked to the Roman Revolution found outside of Italy (Brown was U.S. consul when Pope Pius IX fled Rome). The interactive publication permits a deeper understanding of the historical significance of the Nicholas Brown papers, housed at the John Hay Library.

Please note that seating for forums is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
