A Vibrant Research Context

Pitt features early modernist faculty across the departments of Communication Studies, History, History of Art and Architecture, History and Philosophy of Science, Music, Religious Studies, as well as the European languages and literatures (English, French, German, Italian). The university regularly hosts post-docs with early modern interests.
