Call for Proposals : John Fante at AAIS Conference, March 2015

(Nov 26, 2014)

For the annual meeting of the American Association for Italian Studies (March 27-29, 2015, Boulder, CO), Valerio Ferme  has organized a panel "John Fante, the West and Italian-American Writers."This panel invites submissions that discusses the writings and perceptions of the West by Italian immigrants and/or their Italian-American descendants as they began inhabiting and coming face-to-face with the wider expanses of the West and its native people. In particular, we welcome submissions that discuss Boulder-native John Fante’s portrayal of Italian-Americana in Colorado first and in Los Angeles later.

Please send a 250 word abstract to Valerio Ferme (valerio.ferme@colorado.edu) by December 15.
