Italian Research Seminar: M.A. Student Presentations


Location: Rare Books & Special Collections (102 Hesburgh Library)

The second meeting of the Italian Research Seminar in Spring 2022 will host research presentations by 2nd-year students in the Italian MA program: Giulia Mondello will present her research entitled: "'Penetrare non possit acumen': Fortuna and Ethics in Boccaccio"; and Maria Videtta will present her research entitled: "The Accidental Citizens of Bedford: The Representation of Italian Immigrants in Britain."




The Italian Research Seminar, a core event of the Center for Italian Studies, aims to provide a regular forum for faculty, postdoctoral scholars, graduate students, and colleagues from other universities to present and discuss their current research. The Seminar is vigorously interdisciplinary, and embraces all areas of Italian literature, language, and culture, as well as perceptions of Italy, its achievements and its peoples in other national and international cultures. The Seminar constitutes an important element in the effort by Notre Dame's Center for Italian Studies to promote the study of Italy and to serve as a strategic point of contact for scholarly exchange.
