    DIPARTIMENTO DI LINGUE E LETTERATURE STRANIERE SEZIONE DI LINGUA E LETTERATURA ITALIANA 

    presenta il

    Convegno Internazionale di Italianistica

    dell’Università di Istanbul


    “Proposte per il nostro millennio: La letteratura italiana tra postmodernismo e globalizzazione”

    Istanbul, 19-20 marzo 2015



    Presentazione:

    Questo convegno, organizzato dalla sezione di Lingua e Letteratura Italiana del dipartimento di Lingue e Letterature Straniere dell’Università di Istanbul in collaborazione con l’Istituto Italiano di Cultura di Istanbul, ha come scopo principale promuovere lo sviluppo dell’Italianistica in Turchia attraverso l’intervento di studiosi che provengano non solo dalle università turche, ma anche da realtà italiane e internazionali. La prima edizione di questo convegno si realizzerà negli ambienti della Facoltà di Lettere dell’Università di Istanbul, in pieno centro storico, nella sua stupenda cornice turco-ottomana.

    In questo convegno ci si propone di dare spazio all’analisi della letteratura italiana postmoderna e dell’era globale senza una limitazione di genere o argomento. In questa manifestazione, infatti, si intende favorire soprattutto un metodo interdisciplinare e comparatistico, estremamente consono al Postmodernismo e alla nuova World Literature. Possono partecipare al convegno insegnanti e studiosi presso atenei e istituti, oltre a studenti di Lauree Specialistiche e Dottorandi e gli interventi si svolgeranno in italiano Alla conclusione del convegno è prevista una pubblicazione degli interventi più significativi, selezionati dal comitato organizzatore e scientifico.

    From Prof. Mary Watt:


    The Senator invited me, along with several other professors from Florida universities to attend the reception that followed the passing of the resolution.

    While we are not yet certain what this will mean for Italian studies in the state, it was a good opportunity to meet the Italian consul as well as other dignitaries and speak to them about our challenges, achievements and ongoing needs.

    The presence of an “Italian caucus” in Florida is a promising sign, one that signals a willingness on the part of Italian American politicians to advocate for Italian culture. It would be great to have such allies in Canada!

    Tschuss,

    Mary

    Roberta Cauchi Santoro has successfully defended her dissertation entitled “Beyond the Suffering of Being: Desire in Giacomo Leopardi and Samuel Beckett.” She will be awarded with the degree PhD in Comparative Literature at the June 2013 Convocation ceremony at the University of Western Ontario. On July 1st 2013 Roberta will start a postdoctoral fellowship within the University of Guelph's European Studies Program.


    In her dissertation, Roberta questions critical approaches that argue for Giacomo Leopardi’s and Samuel Beckett’s pessimism and nihilism. Beckett quotes Leopardi when discussing the removal of desire in his monograph Proust, a context that has spurred pessimist and nihilist readings. She argues that the inappropriateness of these labels is, on the contrary, specifically exposed through the role of desire in the two thinkers. Looking at Leopardi’s later poetry in the ciclo d’Aspasia, including the last poem “La Ginestra, o il fiore del deserto,” and examining Beckett’s  plays Endgame and Happy Days, she argues that desire in Leopardi and Beckett could be read as lying at the cusp between Jacques Lacan’s and Emmanuel Levinas’ theories, a desire that both splits the subject (and is thus based on lack) as much as it moulds the subject when called to address the Other (inspiring what Levinas terms ‘infinity’ as opposed to ‘totality,’ an infinity pitted against the nothingness crucial to pessimist and nihilist readings).

    Violetta Sutton (Topoleva) has completed all of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy in Italian Studies at the University of Toronto. In March she successfully defended her dissertation Society, Language, and Carnival in the Comedies of Ludovico Ariosto and will be awarded with the degree at the convocation ceremony, on June 5, 2013.

    For her doctoral dissertation, she examined Ariosto’s comedies focusing not only on their structure, content, language and their reception and influences throughout the centuries, but also on social-historic context in which Ariosto’s comedies were composed, staged, and printed. While applying the theory of carnival in the comprehensive analysis of Ariosto’s comedies, she outlined Ariosto’s innovations made in his comedies. She plans to examine Ariosto’s comedies furthermore and eventually publish her research.
