Modern languages faculty presents at annual meeting
Melinda Cro, assistant professor of French, presented "Montaigne's Italian Voyage" at the annual meeting of the South Atlantic Modern Language Association in Research Triangle, N.C., Nov. 9-11.
The paper examined the Italian-language portion of Montaigne's "Journal de voyage." Written between 1580 and 1581 during his travels throughout Europe, the French author of the Essais wrote about thirty percent of the text of his journal in Italian. The work provides insight into the author's journey, both physical and emotional.
