The Italian Culture Institute is hosting a series of monthly research seminars involving academics in Melbourne as well as guest speakers. The series of seminars titled Research in Italian Studies in Melbourne (RISM) is organized by Dr Patrizia Sambuco (Monash). The aim of RISM is to provide an area of discussion around a pre-established overarching theme which will allow academics in various areas of Italian studies to offer their contributions. The seminars are aimed at creating a synergy between departments of Italian in Melbourne, scholars of other disciplines with a research interest in things Italian and also international guest speakers. Admittance to all seminars is free but booking is recommended. For more information, contact Dr Patrizia Sambuco.
