Event description

Description

This conference will explore the changing permeability and openness between Italian and foreign cultures. It aims to bring together early career researchers working on examples of cross-cultural encounters in all areas of Italian Studies, including literature, art, music, theatre, cinema and digital media. To what extent do foreign cultures manifest themselves in Italian culture? And how are these influences identified as foreign? Has Italian culture become more or less permeable to foreign influences, why? Who are the agents that contribute to these cross-cultural encounters? Are there specific or recurrent contact zones between different cultures? Do multilingual texts, and also multilingual authors, belong to a national culture, or are they part of a transnational culture?
