Holy Cross Maymester Program Leaves Mark on Faculty, Too

After a month of using Rome as a classroom, two professors share the transformative effects of these immersive trips

At the end of a long, hot day last May, Aaron Seider, associate professor of classics, was leading a group of students on a tour of the Capitoline Museum in Rome. He was ready to throw in the towel and head back to the hotel, but his students were enthusiastic about continuing. “They were fired up to see this temporary exhibition,” he remembers. As they entered the room, he was stunned to see a quote from Virgil on the wall; Seider had been working on a paper examining how that exact quote was used in the National September 11 Memorial & Museum in New York, and instantly made a connection between the two institutions.

“It ended up being crucial to my work,” he says. “If I hadn’t been with them, I never would have seen it.”

Holy Cross’ Maymester Program, for which faculty teams lead students abroad for a four- to six-week, experiential-learning study abroad trip, can be transformative in the lives of students. And the experience can be just as exciting and enriching for professors, who see familiar sights with a fresh perspective and make connections through the enthusiasm of their students.

“Most of these things I have seen before numerous times,” says Professor Thomas Martin, the Jeremiah W. O’Connor, Jr., Chair in the Classics, who co-taught the Maymester course Rome in History and Imagination with Seider. “To learn something new you have to talk aloud and move your body. By having to talk to students and explain to them anew, it sets me up for more creative thoughts.”

Other Maymester courses this year explored social justice in Bangalore, India; the history of the Holocaust in Central Europe; theatre in London; and revolutionary Paris. In some, faculty have been able to conduct their research on the side — as Martin did when he spent an afternoon in the Vatican Library this past May. But such direct research is not the focus for faculty.

“I am not talking about things that necessarily directly advance my research agenda, though that does happen,” he says. Rather, the experience of returning to Rome with students reminds him of the excitement of his own first trip to the Eternal City 50 years ago. “Going there, it was like an incredible sensory banquet, in which I never got full — and I am still hungry to see more,” he says, noting with a laugh that the metaphor is particularly apt for Italy. “Every time I go, I feel cognitively nourished.”

As with many Maymester programs, Martin and Seider’s course goes beyond exploring the history of the area to examine how that history resounds to the present day. In that regard, Rome may be one of the greatest cities in the world for experiential learning.

“The Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill are right in the middle of a major urban metropolis, and yet you don’t have to walk far to see monuments from the Second World War or the Fascist era,” Martin says. “The architectureand art are living together like a giant intellectual bio-dome.”

The professors have organized their course around these happy accidents, examining how they speak to one another through the ages. “Every year, the order in which we visit the sites changes and students make different connections between these sites,” Seider says. Having the city literally at their feet in that way allows the faculty to teach students in a completely different way than they do in the classroom. Halfway through the course this year, for example, the group visited Ostia Antica, Rome’s ancient port, which is now little more than a collection of rubble. “It’s mainly elaborately arranged rocks,” Martin quips. The exercise for students was to take the knowledge they learned from visiting other sites over the past several weeks to reconstruct the city in their imaginations.

“You can see the lights going on,” Martin continues. “This would have been decorated or people would have gathered here — they are able to see human life and human interaction taking place in their minds. You can’t do that by reading a text or looking at something on screen.”

At the same time, the professors are able to make similar connections they would never make in their research in the library. During past Maymesters, for example, Seider was in the midst of researching poems about the legendary Roman general Marcellus, and as he walked around the city with students, he found himself constantly noticing statues and buildings dedicated to the ancient hero. “I began more and more to understand the context of this literature and see how the buildings were part of this conversation,” Seider says. Coming back to Holy Cross, he is now more apt to put up maps of Rome during class to illustrate the discussion, he says: “It enriches the context of everything.”

Martin has similarly begun to work more material from Maymester into his academic-year courses, using it to bring the classics alive for modern times. For a course on Alexander the Great, for example, he shows students how Alexandrian imagery was appropriated by Italian fascists in their monuments.

“The point is to use the past to energize and direct the present, which happens all across time,” Martin says. “Being in Rome with Maymester made me see that more clearly. It spurred me to find ways in all my courses to show how that happens and given me a broader vision about the kind of things that would be helpful to the liberal arts curriculum.”

In addition to learning from their students and the city itself, the professors have also learned from each other. Maymester is unique in giving professors such intimate exposure to one another’s work. “It was a real treat to sit at the back of one of Tom’s lectures,” Seider says. “Once he got going on this one poem, there was no slowing him down; I was just on the edge of my seat. I said, look at what he does and how he connects with students.”

Beyond such formal presentations, having the luxury of a multiweek excursion gives faculty time for more casual conversations they don’t always have time for on campus. “It’s like being two pilots in the front of an airplane — you are really in close quarters” Martin says. “Now imagine it’s a 30-day flight and you never are able to get off the plane, and all the passengers need to be educated, entertained and kept safe.”

Far from being a burden, however, those tight quarters allowed the colleagues to carry on an ongoing conversation influenced by the richness of the Roman environment — whether it was pointing out an interesting feature of a church they passed or deciding together how they would interpret a new site for students.

“It’s an unbelievable stimulus to creativity,” Martin says. “Because we are locked in this cockpit together, you can think of something at night and you have someone to tell it to the next day who will be interested.” And when the plane literally and figuratively landed back home, both professors arrived with a renewed sense of enthusiasm and new approaches for the classroom, inspired by the richness of Rome.
