Primo Levi Digital Commentary Project

Researchers at the University of Notre Dame and the University of Cambridge are collaborating in building a collaborative online commentary of the "Canto di Ulisse" chapter of Primo Levi’s Se questo è un uomo. With relevant permissions granted by Einaudi, we are developing a small-scale website that offers a platform for a variety of commentary modes and experimental, interdisciplinary perspectives on the text. Our goal is to offer a lively resource that supports scholars and students interested in Levi and/or the Holocaust, and that looks beyond more conventional accounts of this well-known work. The online commentary features the work of an international group of scholars from a variety of disciplines. We welcome contributions in varied media (text, film, artwork, audio, etc.), using approaches ranging from close reading and textual analysis to computational methods and visualization, to creative or reflective work.
