British Romanticism Then and Now: Poetics, Language(s), Translation and Culture.
Call for Applications
The AIA Board is pleased to announce the first edition of the AIA Summer School, which will be held in Viareggio, at Palazzo Paolina, from 4 to 9 June 2018. The School is dedicated to British Romanticism, examined and discussed from a variety of perspectives: theoretical, aesthetic, literary, cultural and linguistic. The attenders will have the opportunity to take part in different kinds of didactic activities: from lectures, in which experts of the field, known both nationally and internationally, will introduce them to the central discourses of Romanticism, to seminars or workshops offering them moments of in-depth confrontation with and interrogation of those main assets through textual close readings. The full immersion in Romantic poetics, culture and languages aims at suggesting the participants new lines of research and studying for their present and future career – in academia or at school. Moreover, it offers an excellent opportunity to share working methods and theoretical approaches, as well as to create a network of contacts leading to further collaborations.
Maximum number of participants: 30.
The Summer School is open to (in order of priority): PhD students (with admission priority), Doctors of Philosophy without a permanent position at University, research fellows (assegnisti), temporary researchers (RTD A and B), school teachers
