The symposium at Centro Studi Americani in Rome will explore American writer Willa Cather's presence in Europe, both as a traveler and writer whose works have been published in Europe and translated into many European languages. Scholars are welcome to examine Cather's works in translation and her reception among European critics and readers. Additionally, scholars are encouraged to consider the influence of Europe and European culture on Cather's works, the representations of Europe in her fiction, and connections between Cather and European artists and writers.
