Paola Bonifazio and Alessandra Montalbano

CFP - American Association of Italian Studies 2013 Annual Conference - University of Oregon, Eugene (April 11-14, 2013)

Testimony in Italy from Postwar to Today

In the last decade, testimony has perhaps been one of the most flourishing genres in Italian literary and visual production and played a key role in shaping both the memory and opinions of civil society on issues such as terrorism, mafia, war, and the abuse of power.

This panel will explore the genre of testimony in Italian literature, philosophy, and the visual arts from the postwar period to today. All theoretical approaches are welcome.

7th Annual Graduate Conference: "alt/" (March 16-17, 2013; abstracts due 12/15)

updated: 
Wednesday, October 31, 2012 - 1:18pm
Northeastern University English Graduate Student Association

"Alt," neither a word nor a prefix in the grammatical sense, has nevertheless been a generative concept in contemporary scholarly interrogations of non-normative ways of engaging with and inhabiting the world. Various fields and disciplines have begun to investigate the meaning, value, and application of alt, inviting critical discourses around questions of alterities, alternations, and alternatives. From considering relations with others to shifting theoretical frameworks to imagining alternate realities, alt complicates periodizations, genres, identities, subjectivities, epistemologies, and discourses.

Catherine Flynn, Richard Brown

James Joyce Quarterly welcomes submissions for a special issue, "Joycean Avant-Gardes," which will explore relationships between the works of James Joyce and avant-garde movements in Europe, Latin America and beyond. If the avant-garde has become an increasingly appealing subject for modernist studies in recent years, this special issue will consider the importance of experimental artistic movements in understanding Joyce's formal and thematic innovations, as well as the usefulness of the Joycean oeuvre in developing our understanding of the different stakes and ambitions of the avant-garde.
