This panel seeks participants interested in exploring the many different ways that the City of Light has been captured in films from a variety of countries. With the possible exception of New York, no city has been used as a setting as frequently as a setting as has Paris. However, the French capital is unique in that it has been featured not only in French films but in films from around the world. This transnational element will be emphasized by the panel, a panel that seeks to explore the contradictions inherent in filming such a contradictory city. For example, how can a city be seen as both the birthplace of the modern while also being so frequently being filmed - particularly in terms of its bohemianism - in such a nostalgic light?

The James Joyce Italian Foundation invites proposals for the Ninth Annual Conference in Rome. It will be hosted by the Department of Foreign Languages, Literatures and Cultures at the Università Roma Tre, to celebrate Joyce's 134th birthday.
The contemporary migrant crisis in Europe, the rise of Islamophobia, and the increasing presence of right-wing activism are resurrecting specters of colonialism, racism, and religious prejudice. How do these alarming phenomena possibly affect the idea of national literatures, area studies, cultural studies, diaspora, migration or exile studies, and the definition of European territoriality itself?

invites participation in the international annual conference on translation and conference interpreting. The event marks the commencement of the academic year for the Department's European Masters in Translation (METT) and European Masters in Conference Interpreting (MEIC).
The conference theme covers issues relating to gender with special emphasis on how language and culture defines, affects, influences, shapes and visualises gender in a wide spectrum ranging from the individual to the communal across an array of disciplines. Being ideologically, politically and socially constructed, language, culture and gender all intersect at some point. And it is this intersection that we wish to explore comparatively from varying perspectives. Concerned with the HOW and WHY's the aim of the conference is to analyse the content of gender within the very bones of language and culture.
