We are delighted to announce that two recent volumes from our I Tatti Studies in Italian Renaissance History series have received prestigious awards from the Renaissance Society of America.
Forgotten Healers: Women and the Pursuit of Health in Late Renaissance Italy (Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 2019) by Sharon Strocchia (VIT’85) was awarded the RSA's Phyllis Goodhart Gordan Book Prize for the best book in Renaissance studies.
A Convert’s Tale: Art, Crime, and Jewish Apostasy in Renaissance Italy (Harvard Univ. Press, 2019) by Tamar Herzig (VIT’14) was awarded the Honorable Mention for the same prize.
One of the few series outside of Italy to produce monographic studies on the history of the Italian Renaissance, the I Tatti Studies in Italian Renaissance History have become a landmark series for historians of early modern Italy and beyond.
