Center for Study of Europe awards grants, creates courses

The Center for the Study of Europe at Brigham Young University has awarded 11 faculty research grants and has assisted in the creation of three new courses.

The center, located in the David M. Kennedy Center for International Studies, awarded grants with the purpose of fostering scholarship on Europe by BYU faculty.

Projects include Frederick Williams’ book “The Poetry of Portugal: a Bilingual Selection of Poems From the Thirteenth Through the Twentieth Centuries”; an article by Brandie Siegfried titled “The Idea of Ireland in Seventeenth Century England, Spain and France”; Darl Larsen’s book “The Annotated Monty Python’s Flying Circus”; and Charlotte Stanford’s book “Building Civic Pride: Constructing Strasbourg Cathedral From 1300 to 1349.”

Other grant beneficiaries include Codell Carter, who plans to translate and publish two Hungarian accounts of the life and work of Ignaz Semmelweis; Hans-Wilhelm Kelling, Paul Kerry and David Crandall, who will translate, annotate and publish the memories of Margarethe von Eckenbrecher; and Mark Choate, who will use the funds to complete his book “Italians Abroad: Emigration, Colonialism and Greater Italy.” Don Harreld will also launch a new phase in his ongoing study of early modern European long-distance trade.

Additionally, political science professors Kendall Stiles, Stan Taylor and Scott Cooper will each conduct research studies.

Three new European courses have also been added, including Honors 330: “The Idea of Europe” taught by Scott Sprenger; History 390R and 590R taught by Don Harreld on European revolutions; and a capstone course on the European Union and NATO (PlSc 450/470) taught by center director and political science professor Wade Jacoby.

For more information, contact the center at europe@byu.edu or Wade Jacoby at 422-1711.
