DEADLINE FOR PROPOSALS: NOVEMBER 20, 2011

An International Symposium dedicated to exploring relations between the culture of Rome and Italy and Modernist Literature, with a special attention to the work of T. S. Eliot.

T. S. Eliot was a connoisseur and an admirer of the cultures of Ancient Rome and Renaissance Italy. The symposium topic deals with one of the most interesting aspects of Eliot's exceptionally complex and erudite poetry, and that is the deep impact that the literature and culture of Rome and Italy had on his work and on Modernist Literature in general.

Re-reading Rider Haggard [update]

Henry Rider Haggard (1856-1925) was a novelist, country gentleman, social commentator, onetime colonial administrator and failed ostrich farmer whose prodigious output comprises a significant but under-examined contribution to late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century literature. While his two most famous works, King Solomon's Mines (1886) and She (1887) have attracted a steady stream of articles in recent years, most notably from the fields of postcolonial and gender studies, a significant proportion of his oeuvre remains almost entirely unstudied, despite their considerable popular success in his lifetime.

A familiar proverb tells us that 'we are what we eat.' Indeed, food is not only a daily necessity to sustain the body. The need for food, its production, its preparation, and its consumption turn it into an important cultural site and a crucial analytical category. Studying 'food' accordingly brings together a number of academic fields ranging from biology and agriculture to sociology, political science, history, and literary and cultural studies, to name just a few. In their interdisciplinary openness and diverse cultural significance, food cultures are central to American studies.
