Jacques Bromberg

Professor Jacques Bromberg is faculty director of Pitt in Sicily. He first visited the island as an undergraduate and, like many other travelers to this ancient land, he has never been free from the nostalgia for it. Professor Bromberg studied Classics and Ancient History at Stanford and Penn, and taught Greek literature and history at Colby College and Duke University before joining the Classics faculty at Pitt in 2014. His research interests include Greek tragedy and its reception, history of medicine, and ancient athletics, and he teaches a wide variety of courses at Pitt in the languages, literature, and cultural history of the Greco-Roman World. Professor Bromberg started Pitt in Sicily in 2016 as a way to introduce Pitt undergraduates to the archaeology and cultural heritage of ancient Greece, and he cannot think of a better place to spend four weeks in the Spring.
