Please consider submitting a proposal for the panel “Queer Italy,” part of the 2017 neMLA convention (chair: Rachel Perry). The convention will take place in Baltimore at The Johns Hopkins University, March 23-26, 2017.
The panel “Queer Italy” seeks to integrate the field of Queer Studies more deeply into scholarship on Italian works. Papers that examine queer representation in Italian literature or cinema are welcomed, as are papers that reexamine Italian works through the critical lens of queer theory. For more information and to submit an abstract, see the cfp on the neMLA website: https://www.cfplist.com/nemla/Home/S/16196. The submission deadline is September 30, 2016.
Thank you for your time and consideration!
Lecturer of Italian, Auburn University
