Welcome to ACIS, the Australasian Centre for Italian Studies – a connection-point for the specialised communities of Italianist scholars in Australasia and beyond.

Under Blog on the menu above you will find the guide to contributing posts. Don’t hesitate to make use of it, participate in the conversations already established (also by using the ‘Leave a comment’ option beside every post) and inaugurate new ones. If you put your email address in the Follow Blog By Email space at the bottom of this page you will be alerted when a new post appears. Also below, under Blogroll, you’ll see a list of blogs we think will interest Italianists. Beside it, there’s a list of the latest ‘Comments’ to have been posted.

The next major ACIS initiative will be our 8th Biennial Conference to be held in 2015. Venue and dates will be announced shortly.
