In 2012, fresh from a PhD in Philosophy from the Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa and the Université Paris Descartes, Sara took the slightly crazy decision of embarking on a second PhD in Renaissance Studies at Warwick. It quickly turned out to be the best decision she could ever have made. Sara graduated from Warwick in 2016 after three deeply enriching years during which she was the grateful recipient of a DARO scholarship, funded by the Warwick alumni. She is now an Assistant Professor of French Renaissance Literature at Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, USA)--but she still finds countless excuses to return to Warwick whenever she can. With Professor Ingrid De Smet, Dr David Lines, and Dr Eugenio Refini, she is one of the leaders of the "Antiquity and Its Uses" collaborative project between Warwick's Renaissance Centre and Hopkins's Singleton Center for the Study of Premodern Europe. Since 2016, this project has brought several Warwick PhD students and staff members to Hopkins, and vice versa, for week- and month-long visits that have strengthened the ties between the two institutions. Sara hopes that this will be the start of a long and fruitful partnership between her alma mater and her new institutional home.
