Symposium on Renato Poggioli (1907-2007)
We are in the process of co-organizing a symposium to commemorate Renato Poggioli on the centenary of his birth. The symposium will take place in the fall of 2007, at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Harvard University and Brown University. During his illustrious career, Renato Poggioli came to the U.S. as lecturer of Italian at Smith College, was Professor of Comparative Literature at Brown and finally, became Professor of Comparative Literature and Slavic Studies at Harvard.
We are looking for colleagues in Comparative Literature, Slavic, Italian and European Studies who are familiar with the work of Poggioli and would be interested in participating in this project. Proposed panels or papers should address Poggioli’s intellectual activity and legacy or focus on disciplines and fields he contributed to during his career, including: the theory of the avant-garde, Twenties Century Russian poetry, Slavic and European Studies in the US, translation, etc., but also Italy-US intellectual exchange in the post WWII era, anti-fascist expatriates in North America, etc.
A detailed call for papers will follow.
