While at Princeton University, Giovanna Ceserani was a member of the 2000-2003 Society of Fellows’ cohort and a lecturer in the Department of Classics. Currently Giovanna Ceserani works on the classical tradition with an emphasis on the intellectual history of classical scholarship, historiography and archaeology from the eighteenth century onwards at Stanford University’s Department of Classics.
In her talk she will discuss how digital approaches are changing our understanding of the history of travel—focusing specifically on the 18th-century Grand Tour, when tens of thousands of Northern Europeans traveled to Italy. She will ask how new technologies might help us to get beyond the best-known, largely elite Grand Tourists, whose accounts have dominated the understanding of this influential touristic phenomenon, and encourage us to pose new questions about this historically significant world of travel.
