Umbra Prepares for International Conference

Staff and faculty are steadily preparing for Bridges Across Culture, an international conference on the arts and humanities to be held at the Umbra Institute June 27-30. 


Hailing from Wyoming to Istanbul, academics and professionals from various arts and humanities fields will meet in Perugia to present to and learn from each other. Topics range from Dante to African Studies to The “Art” of War. Read the entire program here. 

Sponsored by the Umbra Institute and Washington & Jefferson College, the conference was organized by W & J Drs. Amparo Alpañés and H.J. Manzari and Umbra’s own Drs. Elgin Eckert and Angela Tumini. Eckert, an Umbra professor, co-organized last summer’s Food Conference, while Tumini, a Chapman University professor, teaches a course for Umbra’ summer session.
