Florence Ethnographic Field School 2022 Programs Canceled

Dear Friends and Supporters of the Florence Ethnographic Field School,

I regret to inform you that I have decided to cancel the Summer 2022 session of the Field School. As of April 10, 2022, both the US Department of State and the US Centers for Disease Control continue to maintain a “Level 4: Do Not Travel” Advisory for Italy. As important as studying abroad is, it does not constitute essential travel, and I will not invite students to disregard travel advisories issued by the US government. Furthermore, the Field School is not equipped to provide the level of accommodation and support necessary in the case that a student onsite were to test positive and require isolation or hospitalization, or in the case that a student would have to remain in Italy beyond the duration of the program due to a positive test. Thank you for your continued interest and support.   

un caro saluto da Firenze, warm regards from Florence,
Prof. ZA
