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.

Please submit a 250-300 word abstract and brief biographical note to BOTH Alessandra Montalbano and Paola Bonifazio by November 15, 2012.
