Si informa (si veda locandina allegata) che in data 19 aprile alle ore 10 al Dipartimento di Lettere e Filosofia dell’università di Trento, si terrà il seminario dal titolo “Narrative and Counter-narratives: The Stories Americans Tell About Race” condotto dalla Prof. a Jessica Maucione, Gonzaga University, Spokane, Washington State.
Il seminario è offerto dall’Ambasciata USA nell’ambito del programma American Studies Italy.
La Prof.a Maucione si soffermerà su testi di letteratura, cinema e cultura popolare statunitense per interrogare il ruolo di personaggi e narrazioni che separano la specie umana lungo artefatte linee di razza, celebrare la presunta superiorità “bianca” e disumanizzare personaggi “neri”, “scuri” “gialli”.
Responsabile dell’incontro: Prof.a Giovanna Covi.
Il seminario è programmato per gli studenti di Letterature Angloamericane e aperto a chiunque abbia interesse.

15/11/2018 – CFP: 14th SAAS Conference “The Image and the Word: Interactions between American Literature, Media, Visual Arts and Film”

14th SAAS Conference

“The Image and the Word: Interactions between American Literature, Media, Visual Arts and Film”

University of Salamanca (Spain)

10-12 April, 2019

Word and image play an important role in perception. Under the landslide of innovation in the domain of communication and representation in the last half-century, the visual turn of culture enhanced by the postmodern digital turn has fundamentally changed traditional means of understanding culture and the expression of literature, image, film, and photography. Various philosophers and theoreticians, such as James Heffernan, Wendy Steiner, Barbara Stafford, W.J.T. Mitchell, have analyzed the “pictorial turn” of our present, claiming that the long dominance of the written book is giving way to the visual image —cinema, video, photography, and other forms of pictorial and digital representation.

31/05/2018 – CFP: Aftermath: The Fall and the Rise after the Event

Aftermath: The Fall and the Rise after the Event is an international conference which wishes to explore the notion and representation of aftermath, , understood as a consequence/result/after-effect of a seminal event (to an individual, a community, society, regions and nations) whose nature is not necessarily unfortunate and disastrous but certainly transformative and life-changing.

The conference is jointly organised by the Institute of English Studies (Jagiellonian University in Kraków), Institute of Art History (University of Warsaw) and Region and Nation Literature Association.

The conference will be held in Kraków on 25-27 October 2018. Leggi tutto “31/05/2018 – CFP: Aftermath: The Fall and the Rise after the Event”
