NeMLA Italian Studies - 2014 Special Issue: The Jewish Experience in Contemporary Italy

updated: 
Monday, March 18, 2013 - 11:32pm
Philip Balma / University of Connecticut

Even before his untimely passing in 1987, Primo Levi's contributions to the Italophone literary panorama inspired a significant amount of critical responses. One could argue that his name has become synonymous with contemporary representations of the Italian Jewry, including (but not limited to) artistic reflections of World War II and the Shoah. This volume aims to highlight new or underexplored approaches to the study of the Italkim, but also to properly contextualize and further the extant critical discourse on Italian-speaking, foreign-born authors such as Edith Bruck and Giorgio Pressburger who (among others) have had an undeniable impact on how Italian and European audiences perceive the modern Jewish experience.

[UPDATE] "Architecture and Literature: Reading the Room" (1-3 November, San Diego); Proposal Deadline: 15 April

Pacific Ancient and Modern Languages Association (PAMLA)

Most literary works take place within the context of some sort of constructed space, e.g. a house, an office, a transit node, a place of worship, a place of performance. The constraints and opportunities of such a setting often contribute to our understanding of characters, actions and ideas. Architecture also provides a rich system of tropes by which readers and writers can define important elements of text either literally or figuratively. This panel seeks papers on literary works from any genre, region or time period that consider the treatment of architecture as background, foreground, structural model or other component of the literary work or works in question.
