    The Mariano A. Elia Chair in Italian-Canadian Studies with the Italian Studies Program of the Department of Languages, Literatures and Linguistics, York University, the Italian Chamber of Commerce of Ontario and the Culinaria Research Centre, University of Toronto, Scarborough are pleased to announce a forthcoming conference on the worldwide dissemination of Italian foodways. Presentations are invited from anyone interested in the connection between Italian cuisine(s) both at home and abroad and the development of Italian or Italian-Canadian ethnic identity.  Any aspect of Italian foodways will be considered including, but not limited to, consuming and marketing of Italian food stuffs; growing, preparing, exporting and importing them; and similar topics. All practical and scholarly disciplines are welcome including, for example, not only historians, sociologists, anthropologists, linguists but also those with an active interest in food production, preparation, and marketing, to name only a few possibilities.

    The important observation that “we are what we eat” (Gabaccia 1998) has profound implications for cultural identity not only for countries of immigration, where diverse foodways come into contact, but also for those from where the exported foodways originate. As is well known, Italians formed the largest European emigrant group of the 19th and 20th centuries and, as they dispersed globally, they carried their cuisine(s) with them. Of course, these were culinary ‘traditions’ which themselves had changed significantly over time and in particular through the period of the Columbian Exchange which long preceded the formation of the modern Italian nation state.

    In their global dispersal, both before and after unification, Italians may have carried with them only a memory of a cuisine but, wherever they settled, enclaves or so-called colonie or Little Italies were established and efforts to recreate the memory began. That re-creation, however, always happened in the presence of other cultures and other foodstuffs. At the same time, the culture(s) of origin were far from static with regard to so-called ‘traditional’ cuisine(s).

    The conference will take place from Thursday 19 to Sunday 22 October, 2017 at York University in Toronto, Canada with some of the proceedings taking place at the University of Toronto, Scarborough and elsewhere. Presenters are invited to submit a brief proposal describing their contribution. A full-text version of the proposal will be required for dissemination two weeks before the conference date and funding is currently being sought to finance the publication of a volume (for which papers will be peer reviewed) derived from the proceedings. Limited funding may be available to cover some travel costs incurred by presenters attending the conference. 

    Please send an abstract (maximum 250 words) to the organizers Professor Gabriele Scardellato (gpscar@yorku.ca) and Professor Roberta Iannacito-Provenzano (roberta@yorku.ca) by Monday 3 July 2017.  Please include full name and institutional affiliation (if applicable) along with contact information.

    The Runaway Word.

    Languages and Religious Exile in the Renaissance

    LE STUDIUM International Conference (Tours, CESR, 6 - 8 November 2017)

     

    Conference organizers

    Chiara Lastraioli (Université de Tours/CESR) and Franco Pierno (University of Toronto)

     

    Confirmed Keynote Speakers

    Elvezio Canonica (Université de Bordeaux)

    Andreas Dufter (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München)

    Geneviève Gross (Institut d’Histoire de la Réformation- Université de Genève)

    Frank Lestringant (Université Paris-Sorbonne)

    Federico Zuliani (The Warburg Institute- University of London)

     

    Call for Papers

    The aim of the conference is to bring together scholars who work on texts published in Geneva during Calvin’s lifetime and until the end of the 16th century. The debate will focus on stylistic, rhetorical, and linguistic issues in this editorial production determined by Calvinist thought and theology. The conference will also take into account the political as well as social contexts in which these texts were conceived and produced, such as the censorial system put in place by Calvin himself or by the administrative bodies set up on his authority, the editorial market, and the circulation of books in a reformed milieu. In addition, the conference will address the influence exerted by the “polyglossie du refuge” on the works printed during this period. The organizers are also interested in papers focusing on the relationship between texts and the Reformation in the same time period in others lands of religious exile: Alemannic Switzerland (especially Basel), Grisons (included some Protestant valleys of Northern Italy), England, not forgetting France (especially Lyon).

     

    The conference, organized by the CESR (Centre d’Études Supérieures de la Renaissance), is financially supported by LE STUDIUM, and is part of the research activities led by the team EDITEF Project (Édition italienne dans l’espace francophone à la première modernité).

     

    Given the very specific topic, the organizers envision this to be a conference with a limited number of participants.

    Selected speakers will be entirely reimbursed by LE STUDIUM (transportation to and from Tours, stay in Tours, and meals).

     

    Working languages of the conference will be French and English.

     

    Submissions should consist of an abstract of up to 300 words, and a short CV. They are to be sent to franco.pierno@utoronto.ca and chiara.lastraioli@univ-tours.fr by April 23, 2017.

    Descriptif du colloque et appel à communication

    L’objectif de ce colloque est de rassembler des interventions concernant les textes publiés à Genève à l’époque de Calvin jusqu’à la fin du 16e siècle. Il s’agit avant tout d’évaluer les répercussions stylistiques, rhétoriques et linguistiques que l’influence de la pensée et de la théologie calvinistes avait déterminées dans cette production. Ces analyses prendront aussi en ligne de compte les contextes politiques et sociaux dans lesquels ces textes ont été conçus et réalisés : la censure mise en place par Calvin (et par les organismes administratifs émanant de son autorité), le marché et la diffusion du livre dans un contexte réformé. De même, une attention particulière sera consacrée à l’influence d’une « polyglossie du refuge » sur les ouvrages imprimés à cette période.

    Dans le même sillage méthodologique, les organisateurs sont également intéressés à des  communications ayant pour sujet le rapport entre les textes et la Réforme à la Renaissance dans d’autres territoires de l’exile religionis causa : la Suisse alémanique (notamment Bâle), les Grisons (qui comprennent aussi certaines vallées protestantes de l’Italie septentrionale), l’Angleterre, sans oublier la France et notamment Lyon.

    Ce colloque, financé par l’agence régionale Le Studium, est une initiative émanant du Centre d’Etudes Supérieures de la Renaissance de Tours et s’inscrit dans les recherches conduites par l’équipe du projet EDITEF (Édition italienne dans l’espace francophone à la première modernité).

     

    Étant donné la spécificité du sujet traité, on envisage d’organiser un colloque avec un nombre restreint de participants. Les frais des participants dont les propositions seront sélectionnées seront entièrement remboursés/financés par LE STUDIUM (voyage, séjour à Tours et repas).

    Les langues du colloque seront le français et l’anglais.

    Les personnes intéressées sont priées d’envoyer leur proposition (maximum 300 mots) et une biographie courte à franco.pierno@utoronto.ca et chiara.lastraioli@univ-tours.fr avant le 23 avril 2017.

    Cari tutti,

    I'm delighted to announce the publication of the following book:


    LUCILLA BONAVITA, Luigi Pirandello and Orazio Costa: The Unpublished Works of Archivio Costa in the Experience of Piccolo Teatro di Roma (1948-1954), Roma, Edicampus, 2016.


    The book, in addition to offering a contribution to the studies about Pirandello, proposes a reading of the "stage fact" through a documentary and philological route constituted of unpublished material that winds within the notebooks jealously guarded by the Master since 1938 until his death, and now preserved in the Costa Archive in Florence. Founder of Piccolo Teatro di Roma (1948-1954), Orazio Costa brings to the stage the plays written by Pirandello during that time: through a transcoding process of the literary texts of Six Characters in Search of an Author and Right You Are (If You Think So), we are witnessing a new dramatic writing that, while remaining philologically faithful to Pirandello's text, increases its poetic potential.

    CALL FOR PAPERS


    “On the Eve of the Reformation: The View from Then and Now”


    An interdisciplinary conference

    at Victoria College in the University of Toronto

    21-22 October 2016

    sponsored by

    The Toronto Renaissance and Reformation Colloquium


    Deadline to submit proposals: Thursday, 31 March 2016


    As we prepare to commemorate the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s  posting of his 95 theses in October 1517, it may be useful to pause for a moment and consider two important questions: first, how were the historical and cultural events of the late fifteenth and very early sixteenth century defining the European world that would soon break apart along sectarian lines, and, second, how did writers, thinkers, and artists later in the century look back at that earlier world and culture. The years immediately preceding 1517 were  richly marked by events/works that were to have a lasting impact on their times. In 1516, for example, the fifteen-year-old Charles von Habsburg was crowned king of Spain, Thomas More published his Utopia, Erasmus his Novum Testamentum and Ariosto his Orlando furioso, and the Venetians established the Ghetto. The previous year, 1515,  the twenty-year-old Francis I was crowned king of France, Thomas Wolsey was named cardinal and then Chancellor of England, Martin Luther began to lecture on Paul’s Letter to the Romans, Johannes Reuchlin established the first university chair of Greek in Germany, while across the ocean the Spaniard Diego Velázquez de Cuéllar founded the city of Havana. How did people later in the sixteenth century and early in the next see these events? How, for example, did Shakespeare see and depict pre-Reformation England in some of his historical plays? How did Montaigne, or Cervantes, or Caravaggio, or Monteverdi see the world before the Reformation?


    This interdisciplinary conference seeks, therefore, to take the pulse of European history and culture in two different ways: from our perspective as early twenty-first-century scholars and from the perspective of late-sixteenth/early-seventeenth-century writers and artists. In so doing, the conferences seeks to cast its eyes on  both the Old World and the New,  Europe as well as in its African and Asian extensions, history as well as the arts, society as well as events.


    Proposals for papers to be presented at the conference should include:

    the name of the speaker; the speaker’s academic affiliation (or “independent scholar”, as applicable); the title of the presentation; a 150 words abstract; full contact information for the speaker (name, address, telephone, email); the speaker’s one-page CV. In the case of complete session proposals, this information is to be repeated for each presenter.

    Proposals should be emailed to both conference organizers:
                Prof. Elizabeth Cohen at                     ecohen@yorku.ca
                Prof. Konrad Eisenbichler at              konrad.eisenbichler@utoronto.ca

    Deadline for submission: Thursday, 31 March 2016.

    For further information, please contact either one of the conference organizers.

    22-27 giugno 2016

     

     

    L’AATI (American Association of Teachers of Italian) comunica che il prossimo convegno internazionale si terrà nella città di Napoli, 22-27 giugno 2016, presso l’Università degli Studi di Napoli L’Orientale e l’Università degli Studi di Napoli Federico II, con il seguente programma di massima: 

     

    v 22 giugno: giorno ufficiale di arrivo; workshops/visite guidate (mattina); registrazione; (pomeriggio-sera) inaugurazione e saluti delle autorità; sessione plenaria; concerto, ricevimento;

    v 23-25 giugno: lavori

    v 25 giugno: sessioni plenarie (pomeriggio) 

    v 25 giugno: cena sociale

    v 26 giugno: gite nei dintorni di Napoli

    v 27 giugno: giorno ufficiale di partenza

     

    Il convegno rappresenterà un altro straordinario momento d’incontro grazie soprattutto all’importanza del luogo in cui si svolgeranno i lavori. Napoli raffigura un punto cruciale ed un luogo fondamentale dove storia, cultura, politica, filosofia, nascono, si dipanano e s’intrecciano in maniera unica ed originale.

     

    Anche se il tema del convegno è aperto, l’AATI incoraggia i colleghi a pensare in termini più specifici e pertinenti sia al luogo d’attuazione del convegno—Napoli e la Campania—sia agli avvenimenti legati alla contemporaneità italiana. Accanto a temi vari di pedagogia, cultura, letteratura, cinema, teatro, italiano come L2, la lingua italiana all’estero, identità italiana nel mondo, storia, economia, arte, opera, ecc., si suggeriscono anche altri temi più “locali”:

     

    ·      La lingua italiana all’estero (insegnamento, diffusione, politca per);

    ·      Cultura e identità italiana nel mondo;

    ·      La globalizzazione linguistica: rapporti tra “lingue forti” e “lingue deboli”;

    ·      La nuova “questione meridionale”;

    ·      L’immigrazione in Italia oggi e l’emigrazione italiana del passato;

    ·      L’emigrazione e la diffusione dell’italiano nel mondo;

    ·      Scrittori migranti in Italia: un nuovo canone nella letteratura italiana?’;

    ·      L’illuminismo napoletano tra pensiero filosofico ed economia politica;

    ·      Giambattista Vico e il suo influsso in Italia e all’estero;

    ·      Napoli e le civiltà classiche;

    ·      Da San Gennaro al presepe: pratiche religiose, influssi ed esiti sulla cultura; popolare in Italia e all’estero;

    ·      La letteratura dialettale napoletana e la sua diffusione in Italia e  all’estero;

    ·      La nuova narrativa meridionale tra giallo e denuncia;

    ·      Il teatro napoletano;

    ·      Totò e la tradizione comica napoletana;

    ·      Napoli e il cinema contemporaneo; 

    ·      Canzone e balli napoletani: storia e influssi.
