The conference provides an opportunity to take stock of recent and ongoing research in topics which straddle the boundaries between 'oral' and 'written' cultures in Italy and Italian-speaking communities, and which explore critically the relationship between them. Among the issues which will be addressed are: the presence of oral tradition in medieval and early modern culture; the changing role of orality in relation to print and new electronic media; the representation of orality in written texts; orality in theatre and cinema; reflections on voice and subjectivity; and linguistic perspectives on the spoken and the written.
Proposals are therefore invited for papers of approximately twenty minutesí delivery time in length on these and related topics. Proposals should comprise an abstract of around 200 words and contact details, and should be sent by email to Michael Caesar on firstname.lastname@example.org and should arrive no later than 15 January 2002 (earlier if possible). You will be notified of the outcome of your proposal by 31 January 2002.
