Redefining Epic, Romance and Novel in Italian Culture (CAIS 2019 Orvieto, Italy)

updated: 
Monday, November 26, 2018 - 12:02pm
Lucia Gemmani (University of Iowa), Andrea Privitera (University of Western Ontario, Università di Padova)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, February 28, 2019

This panel seeks to continue the fruitful dialogue about the intertwining of epic, romance and novel in Italian culture we started at the AAIS-CSIS 2017 Conference in Columbus, Ohio. In order to further the scholarship of Bakhtin, Jameson, Doody, and Fusillo among others, we welcome investigations of the widespread presence and reciprocal influence of these three literary forms in the Italian linguistic and cultural space from the Middle Ages to the present day. What motivates their contaminations? What emerges from the collisions of these different styles and worldviews within the Italian context?

Shakespearean Translations – Translating Shakespeare

updated: 
Thursday, October 11, 2018 - 9:18am
Shakespeare Seminar 2019
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 30, 2018

It is a critical commonplace that Shakespeare in many ways relied on and produced various forms of translations – translations of foreign words, translations of literary texts, translations from one medium into another, to name but a few. Over time, Shakespeare’s works themselves have become some of the most widely translated texts in world literature. As of today, his works have been translated into more than 100 languages. Moreover, his plays and poems have travelled across time and space, and they have been re-translated time and again in order to adapt them for contemporary audiences. More often than not, such translations also raise questions about the original works and their socio-cultural as well as literary contexts.
