CFP Italian Empire: Call for Papers for AAIS session, May 13-15, 2022
Ciao fellow Italianists! I'm putting together a session for the American Association for Italian Studies' annual conference (online portion: May 13-15, 2022), and welcome paper proposals.
Session title: Italy's Empire
Session organizer: Shira Klein, Associate Professor at Chapman University
Session description: The history of the Italian colonies was, for a long time, restricted to military and diplomatic historians. While the field has recently expanded to the province of social and cultural historians as well as literature, art, and film scholars, it has still received “far too little attention,” as Ruth Ben Ghiat and Mia Fuller stated in their recent volume Italian Colonialism. This panel calls for papers on new research pertaining to Italy’s empire. My paper examines encounters between Italian and Libyan Jews in Benghazi.
Please send proposals to email@example.com (title, 150-200 word abstract, and short bio) to Shira Klein by January 31, 2022.
November 23, 2021 to January 31, 2022
