INTERSECTIONAL ANALYSIS AND ITALIAN STUDIES
This panel seeks works in progress that attempt to examine intersections of race, nation, class, gender, ability and/or sexuality in Italian culture and history. Papers on any historical period or subtopic are welcome. We are particularly interested in papers still struggling to develop a methodology. We see the panel as an opportunity to talk together about the ways in which one might conduct intersectional analysis and the challenges it poses. Papers that address the shortcomings of intersectional analysis, such as the sympathetic critique provided by Robyn Wiegman in her Object Lessons, are also welcome. Please submit abstract and brief bio by January 31, 2020.
