Revealing Italy : Italy Re-veiled
Keynote Speaker: Prof. Claudio Fogu (UC Santa Barbara)
On behalf of the graduate students of the Department of Italian Studies at Brown University and the Italian Section of the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures at Harvard University, We are pleased to announce the fifth joint Graduate Student Conference for Italian Studies, to be held on Friday March 2nd and Saturday March 3rd, 2012 at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island.
This conference will investigate the possible declinations of the concepts of veiling and unveiling, covering and uncovering in relation to Italy. What role do these dynamics play in the Italian context? In what ways do they unfold in Italian history, literature, politics, art, philosophy, cinema, theater, etc?
