The Department of Italian Studies at Wellesley College, the Educational Office of the Italian Consulate in Boston, and MITA (Massachusetts Italian Teachers Association) are pleased to invite you to attend the:

State of the Discipline: Italian Studies in the Early 21st Century. The first symposium, organized by Wellesley College in 2009, began a tradition of periodically examining the state of Italian Studies in the USA. This year, the symposium will host speakers from different academic and educational institutions who will present papers addressing the state of the discipline, including its present and future directions.

This one-day colloquium is organized in two plenary single-paper sessions, which are devoted to a discussion of the state of Italian Language study and of Italian Cultural Studies, respectively. All attendees are expected to read pre-circulated 'position papers' in order to facilitate discussion and intellectual exchange between presenters and participants on that day. 'Position papers' will be sent to all registered attendees by September 16.

We encourage all members of the profession to participate and contribute to this important discussion.

As seats are limited, we kindly ask all attendees to register no later than September 9, using this link or the link below.

The event is open to the public and registered teachers will receive a certificate of attendance granting 10 PDPs. On the behalf of the organizing committee, we look forward to seeing you on October 1st at Wellesley College.

For any further information or questions, please contact prof. Flavia Laviosa at
