NeMLA 47th Annual Convention

La tavola rotonda si propone di discutere il processo che dalla Filologia può portare alla Critica letteraria, con particolare attenzione alla metodologia e ai "nuovi" strumenti di lavoro (internet, archivi digitali, ecc.). Ci si interrogherà sulla relazione tra questi due campi di studio: il filologo può o deve essere anche un critico e viceversa? Si sollecitano contributi su studi e lavori conclusi o in corso di svolgimento concernenti il diciannovesimo, ventesimo e ventunesimo secolo.
