Due to Covid-19, we will not be hosting any in-person events. However, faculty, students, and affiliates have set up several opportunities to remain engaged with the Italian Studies Department...
Italian Language Exchange:
Are you looking for more opportunities to practice your Italian from home?
Join students from the Italian department this Friday at 3PM for an informal conversation group via Zoom.
Ferrante Fever Reading Group:
Ferrante Fever, named after the 2017 documentary by Giacomo Durzi, is a reading group dedicated to Elena Ferrante, the pseudonymous best-selling Italian author. Through weekly meetings, we shall be reading and discussing selections from one of Elena Ferrante's books in English, although those who have reading knowledge of the Italian language are more than welcome to read the original in Italian. We will also be discussing the cinematic and television adaptations of her work, as well as the culture that is forming around her works. More information about the club can be found here: https://www.meetup.com/Ferrante-Fever-An-Elena-Ferrante-Reading-Group
Plague and Sickness Reading group
Meetings are on Fridays at 3pm, and cover many Italian literature staples. Check out more information at this link to their page!
