Ann and Bill Swindells Professor and Professor, by courtesy, of Neurobiology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe study how neurons are organized into specialized circuits to perform specific functions and how these circuits are assembled during development. We have developed molecular-genetic and viral tools, and are combining them with transcriptomic, proteomic, physiological, and behavioral approaches to study these problems. Topics include: 1) assembly of the fly olfactory circuit; 2) assembly of neural circuits in the mouse brain; 3) organization and function of neural circuits; 4) Tool development.
Assistant Professor of English
BioIvan Lupić specializes in Shakespeare and Renaissance literature. He is particularly interested in interdisciplinary and transnational approaches informed by the study of primary sources and responding to the multilingual and multicultural nature of the Renaissance literary archive. His most recent book, concerned with counsel and subjectivity in early modern English drama, was published by the University of Pennsylvania Press in 2019 under the title Subjects of Advice: Drama and Counsel from More to Shakespeare. It offers an original account of the foundational role that counsel played in the development of Renaissance drama.
In 2020 Lupić will be a Berenson fellow at Villa I Tatti, the Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies in Florence, as well as a Frances A. Yates fellow at the Warburg Institute in London, where he will be working on a new book, provisionally titled The Illyrian Renaissance: Literature in the European Borderlands. He has also been developing a book project on Shakespeare and the End of Editing, focused on the history of Shakespeare editing in the context of manuscript studies. Lupić has published widely in fields ranging from Shakespeare translation and contemporary reception to Renaissance scribal culture, book history, and comparative literary studies.
Lupić takes his academic motto from A Groatsworth of Wit (1592): "To learning and law there's no greater foe than they that nothing know."
