Hello all:

As you may know, 2007 marks the bicentenary of Garibaldi's birth.
Bearing that in mind, I'm seeking papers for a panel (or panels) that
I'm proposing on "Britain, Garibaldi, & the Risorgimento" for the North
American Conference on British Studies, which meets in San Francisco
9-11 November 2007.

I'd like the panel(s) to take an interdisciplinary approach to the topic
and so, if possible, to include scholars working in such areas as Art
History/Visual Culture/Film, History, Italian Studies, Literature,
Political Science, and Sociology.
