The 2022 conference theme is “Frontiers, Encounters and Futures”.
As mobility and encounter become more and more contested areas of cultural debate and political rhetoric, Italian Studies has a valuable contribution to make, from its many disciplinary perspectives. Italy’s long history is written in encounters at its internal frontiers – geographical, cultural, linguistic, political – and at its frontiers with the lands of the Mediterranean rim and continental Europe. Pertinent too are the movements and encounters of Italians beyond the sea and the Alps (and back again), and the movement of ‘others’ inside Italian frontiers. These experiences of internal and transnational disruption and transformation of constructed identities, along with the current challenges to our global futures, urge us to share opportunities, risks and solutions. This conference welcomes critical reflections from all disciplines on the creation and evolution of frontiers, the dynamics of encounters and the shaping of futures for individuals, communities and collectivities that engage with Italy and Italians.
