Janann Sherman sends pictures from trip to Austria, Italy, and Switzerland

During the period between the end of the Spring Semester and the beginning of the First Summer Term, Dr Janann Sherman, Chair of the Department of History, visited Austria, Italy, and Switzerland. Out of the hundreds of photographs she took, here are a few to give some of the flavor of her visit.
