Elisabeth Lasch-Quinn was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship in U.S. Intellectual History at the University of Rome III in Rome, Italy, for the Spring 2012 semester. She will teach and advise graduate students and conduct research in Roman archives on her work in progress on the contemporary self in historical and philosophical perspective. Her work is informed by key works from antiquity to the present, including those of third-century Greek philosopher Plotinus, the focus of her research in Rome, nineteenth-century Danish theologian Søren Kierkegaard, and twentieth-century classical sociologist Philip Rieff.
