    AAIS Bologna - In-Person panel 

    Call for papers: TRANSITALIES

    This panel welcomes papers that engage with notions of transness, in its movement (literary and media transitions, transitory/migratory perspectives) and its betweenness (translations and translation studies, transnational production, transgender identities and theories). We welcome scholarship that makes use of the spaces between borders/disciplines/theories/eras in order to reflect on anti-colonial approaches to Italian studies. We envision this panel as a generative space of collaboration for reflecting on the ways the multitudes of Italian identities are made and experienced in transition, in translation, and in conversation with other identities and lived practices. 

    Some possible subjects may include but are not limited to:

    •  Translation of queer and feminist scholarship to and from Italian

    • Media/literature that centers migrant voices

    • Analyses of texts that engage in trans-genre play

    • Texts that reflect transgender experience in and through Italy

    • Transnational media creation

    • Hyphenated identity media/literature

    Please submit an abstract of 200 words and a very brief bio to sanatrone@vassar.edu and heimj@sas.upenn.edu by January 31 2022.
