Benso, Schroeder to organize seminar on Giovanni Pico della Mirandola

Silvia Benso and Brian Schroeder, professors in the Department of Philosophy, have received a grant from the Central New York Humanities Corridor through an award from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The grant will fund the organization of a seminar—to be hosted virtually at RIT in spring 2022—on the legacy of Italian Renaissance thinker Giovanni Pico della Mirandola in terms of contemporary humanism, post-humanism, and trans-humanism.
