Exploring the Public Sphere in Europe Throughout the Ages


One of the best parts about St. Lawrence University is their attention and emphasis on cross-discipline concepts and subjects. Being able to learn about cross-disciplinary content related to my major and minor miles away from SLU in European cities is an experience I will never forget, one that would not have been possible without the generous donations of the Romeo-Gilbert Intercultural Endowment, and Mr. Paul Gilbert and Mrs. Patricia Romeo-Gilbert. With this grant, I was able to apply the concepts I learned in my FYS with Juraj Kittler, London Coffee Houses and Modernity.

Experiencing Brexit While Abroad

Before I get into any of the research that I was able to complete, I’d like to give myself a small introduction, but first I want to thank Mr. Paul Gilbert and Mrs. Patricia Romeo-Gilbert for supporting my work on the project. My name is Matthew Lawlor and I’m currently a senior here at St. Lawrence. I am majoring in economics and planning to minor in both Italian and statistics. On campus, I am a member of the Men’s Soccer team. I come from a neighboring state in a small town called Glover, Vermont, though originally, I am from Burlington.
