Excerpt:

Faculty Development funds helped to pay for a part of the cost of my 5-week residency at the American Academy in Rome.

It was an honor for me to be accepted for a residency in this venerable place. And it turned out to be a perfect home base for my first encounter with the city of Rome. The Academy was populated by esteemed colleagues from a number of disciplines and illustrious institutions - each of whom gave talks, walks, lectures, and garnered access to many historical Roman sites not open to the public.
