As part of its mission to promote the humanities in the broader community, the Oregon Humanities Center will embark on a new series of public talks by University of Oregon humanities faculty. Nathalie Hester, associate professor of Italian and French, and director of European Studies, will give a talk titled "The Americas and Renaissance Italy".
Italian navigators, humanists, artists, and poets played a key role in the reception of the "New" World in Renaissance Italy and beyond. Hester will explore how Italians in Venice, Florence, Modena, and other city-states incorporated the conquest of the Americas in their cultural, artistic, and political agendas.
Hester is a 2018–19 OHC Faculty Research Fellow currently working on a book project, Inventing America in Baroque Italy: Columbus, Vespucci, and New World Epic, which examines the complex ways that 17th-century Italian poets represented Italy's role in the exploration and conquest of the Americas. A 2019–20 NEH fellowship will allow Hester to complete the manuscript and prepare it for publication.
Hester teaches classes in the Cultural Legacies of Italy, Medieval and Renaissance Literature, Renaissance Women’s Writing, Italy and the Americas, Renaissance Theater in the Renaissance, and Renaissance Court Culture, among others.

Join us for the Mental Wellbeing Art Show on Friday, May 31st! Enjoy live music and free refreshments while viewing over 30 original art pieces submitted by UO students and Eugene community members.
This celebration is held in honor of May Mental Health Month, a time to raise awareness and reflect on the importance of mental health. This year, the UO is focusing on the theme of change, a positive change. Whether that’s a change in our mental health, our support systems, or our coping strategies. We’d like to move our campus toward a community of care, where we engage in conversations that help support one another.
