This year the ASMI Postgraduate Summer School will explore modern and contemporary Italy from a transnational perspective. In a world that is increasingly mobile, we ask how we can explore beyond national borders to reveal the multiplicity and hybridity of Italian culture, society and history. The Summer School therefore aims to examine the dialogue between national and transnational within an interdisciplinary network of researchers. We also aim to encourage discussion of the complexities involved in approaching Italian Studies from a transnational framework and what methods such an approach might entail.
The Summer School programme includes:
Keynote lecture with Professor Charles Burdett (University of London)
Transnational Studies and Reframing the Disciplinary Area
Roundtable with Dr Elena Bacchin (Università Ca’ Foscari Venezia/Columbia University), Dr Pietro Di Paola (University of Lincoln), Professor Derek Duncan (University of St Andrews), and Dr Barbara Spadaro (University of Liverpool).
