Before moving to Harvard in 2011, Jeffrey T. Schnapp occupied the Pierotti Chair of Italian Studies at Stanford, where he founded the Stanford Humanities Lab, in 2000. A cultural historian with research interests extending from antiquity to the present, his most recent books are Speed Limits and The Electric Information Age Book (forthcoming). His pioneering work in the domain of digitally augmented approaches to cultural programming has included curatorial collaborations with the Triennale di Milano, the Cantor Center for the Visual Arts, the Wolfsonian-FIU and the Canadian Center for Architecture. His Trento Tunnels project (a 6000 square meter pair of highway tunnels in Northern Italy) has been repurposed as a history museum and was featured in the Italian pavilion at the 2010 Venice Biennale. It is exhibited at the MAXXI in Rome, from 2011-2012. He is a fellow at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society and Professor of Romance Languages & Literatures.  Schnapp is currently a Visiting Professor in Architecture at the GSD and the Faculty Director of metaLAB, also at Harvard.
