Context brings the brightest minds to your living room with perspective-shifting online lectures.
Both erudite and entertaining, this is both very informative and very enjoyable. Everything Dr. Stasiowski does is done with a huge amount of infectious enthusiasm and impeccable preparation and presentation.
In the study of the richness of the text Dr Kristin Stasiowoski takes a non linear approach of thematic exploration placed within the context of the Renaissance. She makes links to the visual arts to align what Boccaccio was doing with text to add an understanding of the fundamental shift that took place at that time.
I have followed all of her Context lectures and they are all so deep and yet accessible and delivered in such a clear and very enjoyable manner.
Dont miss her tour de force conversations!

With the first course of its 3 part series, I am already a big fan of Boccaccio’s Decameron and Dr Stasiowski delivers an all encompassing course, review and message of all the angles of the novel, intertwined in a fantastic wholeness.
Dr. Stasiowski's three-part class on Boccaccio was fabulous. She does a wonderful job of making the material very accessible.
