Just reminders for a couple of approaching deadlines. The applications for the ACIS Cassamarca scholarships for postgraduate research in Italy in 2017 are due by FRIDAY 14 OCTOBER. And the proposals for panels and papers for the ACIS 9th Biennial Conference in 2017 at Monash Prato must be submitted to the organisers (details on the conference page HERE) by MONDAY 31 OCTOBER. Two proposed panels at the conference have also called for further submissions as soon as possible. ‘From Iamsilla to Ferrante: Anonymity and Pseudonymity in Italian Literature’ will investigate anonymity as a complex cultural and social convention, and address methodological issues connected with studying texts without the mediation of the ‘author’: send title, abstract and brief bio to Andrea Rizzi. And the organisers of the panel on ‘Crossing Points & Subversion’ have called for further submissions (title, abstract, bio) to be sent to Gregoria Manzin and Mark Nicholls. And applications for the Monash position (Senior Lecturer/Associate Professor) in Italian Studies close on SUNDAY 30 OCTOBER.
