Travels in My Foreign Land: Culture Out of Place
|Event Start Date||Thursday, September 27, 2012|
Mother Rosalie Hill Hall Warren Auditorium
|Event Start Time||5:30 pm|
In celebration of the new major in Italian Studies, Professor Pasquale Verdicchio will give a lecture about the notions of cultural translation, adjustment, adoption, and adaptation. Please join us for the lecture and the reception that will follow.
Professor Verdicchio teaches Italian studies, film, cultural studies, and environmental literature at UCSD. His prolific work as poet, critic and translator has been published in journals and in book form by a variety of presses. His books include Bound by Distance: Rethinking Nationalism through the Italian Diaspora (1997), Devils in Paradise: Writings on Post-Emigrant Cultures (1998), and Looters, Photographers, and Thieves (2011). His most recent poetry collection, This Nothing’s Place, was awarded the 2010 Bressani Prize. He is the recipient of several grants, including funding from the California Council for the Humanities for research in the preservation of Italian history and culture in San Diego. Most recently, he has participated in the foundation of the San Diego Italian Film Festival, of which he is a program director and vice president.
This event was made possible by a grant from the Enhanced Student-Faculty Interaction Fund.
Reservations are not necessary, but seating is limited so early arrival is wise.
