01/02/2022 – CFP: American Studies Association of Turkey Graduate Conference 2022

Science and technology have influenced American literary and cultural texts, as well as the visual arts, since colonial times. From Hawthorne’s short story “The Birthmark” and Thomas Eakins’ painting The Gross Clinic, depicting Dr. Samuel D. Gross lecturing to a group of Jefferson Medical College students, to countless examples of literary and cultural texts, such as Kim Stanley Robinson’s Science in the Capital series, scientific ideas and technological advances have enriched American authors’ and artists’oeuvres.

28/02/2022 – CFP: Intimate Politics in Anglophone Women’s Writing

(University of Paris-Nanterre, 23-24 September 2022)

 An international conference organized by FAAAM (CREA, EA 370)

 In nineteenth-century romantic literature, especially poetry and personal writings, the notion of intimacy was understood as springing from the depths of an individual, untainted by cultural forces (hence closer to nature). Yet, as a number of studies have shown—most notably Foucault—intimate relationships are the product of social power structures deriving from a patriarchal gender hierarchy and reinforced by class and ethnic divides.

30/01/2022 – CFP: Transatlantic Literary Networks 1949-1972. TRANSLATION, MODERNITY, AND CULTURAL TRANSFER BETWEEN ITALY AND THE UNITED STATES

L’Università del Piemonte Orientale, nell’ambito del PRIN Transatlantic Transfers: the Italian presence in Postwar America 1949-1972, sviluppato insieme a Politecnico di Milano, Università degli Studi Roma Tre e Università di Scienze Gastronomiche di Pollenzo, sollecita proposte di contributi per un convegno che esplorerà le rotte e le diramazioni degli scambi culturali orientati dall’Italia verso gli Stati Uniti, con particolare attenzione al transfer letterario. L’Unità di ricerca UPO studia attori, reti e oggetti culturali che, a partire dal secondo dopoguerra, hanno favorito la circolazione dell’arte, della letteratura e della cultura italiane negli Stati Uniti, con particolare interesse per le espressioni artistiche e letterarie moderniste. In linea con le attività in corso all’Università del Piemonte Orientale, Transatlantic Literary Networks propone di indagare i fenomeni culturali che, seguendo rotte mappate solo in parte, hanno influenzato direttamente o indirettamente il contesto statunitense. L’obiettivo è quello di illuminare un segmento poco studiato della storia culturale transatlantica del XX secolo. Maggiori informazioni sul progetto di ricerca sono disponibili all’indirizzo: https://transatlantictransfers.polimi.it/it/about/
