Sandra Carletti (Italian) has been awarded a fellowship from the Marion and Jasper Whiting Foundation for a project titled The United Tables of Italy: Pellegrino Artusi and the Unification of Italy in the Kitchen. The grant will enable Sandra to travel to Italy during her 2014-15 leave to do research at the Pellegrino Artusi library in Forlimpopoli, Emilia-Romagna, which houses the archives for the iconic cookbook that Artusi published just thirty years after the official unification of Italy. She plans to examine documents and collect materials to enhance her teaching of Italian culture and history and to support creation of a new course on the intersection of literature, food, and language in the representation of Italian identity.
