Welcome to Carlipsen.com. I am an historian of modern Italy and have been on the faculty at Indiana University since 1994. You can learn more about that from my cv and publications. I am also the director of the IU Food institute and Food Project, initiatives inaugurated in 2015 (see link above). For seven years (2011-18) I was director of the Collins Living Learning Center at IU, a wonderful place. Finally I have included an occasional blog.
