Living in Rome has proved to be an exciting adventure over the past 20 years, more interesting than I could have imagined. (And way more interesting than what appears on reality TV- House Hunters- however entertaining that was). Now, as the summer season is upon us- with several overlapping programs and a slew of documentaries to film- I can't help but reflect on the many ways I get to live history daily in Rome.
Latin dead? Not when I can host a Latin tweet up #LTNL every couple of weeks with colleagues and anyone interested in speaking Latine. (In less than a month, students will attend our upcoming summer Latin program, coming from schools big and small, from Stanford to Steubenville. Our guru is Nancy Llewellyn of SALVI: www.latin.org).
