During the summer, it’s nice to have some time to slow down and catch up on things between Alumni Weekend & Graduation and New Student Orientation. In addition to having some time to work on long-term projects, I get more time to enjoy some fascinating posts on our blog by our own faculty.
I was drawn to these stories due to my own wanderlust. I hope these entries inspire your own dreams and travels.
10. Marvelous Macchu Pichu and Mythic Toga Parties: Relive Gwendolyn DuBois Shaw’s, Associate Professor of American Art, visit to mystical Peru.
8. Paris to Normandy: Experience the relaxed atmosphere of a French river cruise with our Professor Gwendolyn DuBois Shaw.
6. The Waterways of Holland and Belgium: Simon Richter, Professor of Germanic Languages and Literatures, shares his discoveries along the impressive canals of the Netherlands and coast of Belgium.
5. Sketches of Spain: Find out more about Northern Spain and Basque Country from our prolific faculty blogger, Gwendolyn DuBois Shaw.
4. The Danube River and Habsburg Empire: Enjoy André Dombrowski’s, Assistant Professor of Art History, tale of traveling down the Danube.
2. Baltic Dispatches, Part 2: Relive Art Caplan’s, the former Emmanuel and Robert Hart Director of the Center for Bioethics, trek around the Baltic States.
These are some of my favorite stories and pictures from our amazing faculty. I’ve been on orbitz, expedia and travelocity to plan some of my own holidays, inspired by our globetrotting professors. Better yet, I’m going to peruse the Penn Alumni Travel page and discover my future expedition there.
