Honors Opportunities

Rudolph Bell, Distinguished Professor in the History Department, in his more than forty years at Rutgers, has always been active in undergraduate education, beginning as History vice-chair for undergraduates; continuing as a study abroad director in Italy, England and Ireland; holding the post of department chair for five years; teaching many times in the Honors Program; and most recently as a faculty union leader involved in addressing the balance of teaching and scholarly publication.  His research interests focus on Italy, from the Middle Ages to the present, with special concern for women, popular piety, and the history of the book. His publications include Holy Anorexia, which is about thin thaumaturgies, and How to do It: Guides to Good Living for Renaissance Italians.  He is currently exploring remarriage decision-making among 16th-century Sicilian widows.
