A one-day symposium at Victoria University of Wellington
15 February 2013
Questions of gender and sexuality are increasingly prevalent and wide-ranging in Italian Studies, with scholarly work both interacting with and informing new and existing cultural and theoretical discourses. This one-day symposium aims to bring together researchers working in these areas in New Zealand and Australia as an opportunity for sharing ideas, exploring interests and building contact between departments.
We would like to invite contributions of 20 minute long papers in English or Italian. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to, gender and sexuality in the areas of Italian literature, history, politics, and film, cultural and media studies.
Please send abstracts (250‒300 words), along with paper title, affiliation and a short bio to the organisers Francesca Calamita (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Alex Standen (email@example.com) by 11 January 2013. Speakers will be notified by 18 January 2013.
