Italian Studies for Global Challenges: Transdisciplinary Conversations.
The 12th Biennial Conference of the Australasian Centre for Italian Studies (ACIS) 2024
The Australian National University, Canberra, 3-6 luglio 2024
The 12th Biennial ACIS Conference invites perspectives on Italian Studies as a field of enquiry with a role to play in facing the challenges that continue to intensify in our highly globalised world – those cultural, political, economic, and environmental challenges demanding consideration and bold address. The conference will take place at the Australian National University, on the unceded lands of the Ngunnawal and Ngambri people, from July 3 to 6, 2024.
Details on how to submit a proposal, registration costs, and location/accommodation can be accessed here.
The ACIS conference aims for an open, multifaceted, and nuanced exploration of Italian Studies' role in illuminating and influencing cultural and social challenges that are shaped by globalisation but also grounded in particular localities, and histories. The conference is thus interested in any discipline, historical period, topic, theme, theory, performing art, methodology and pedagogy that are relevant to Italian Studies. Conference participants are encouraged to articulate with purpose, courage and creativity how and why their teaching, research, art, and community work matter right now.
The deadline to submit a proposal is 3 December 2023.
