Call for Papers


The 2020 ASMI virtual symposium is designed to offer postgraduate students and early career scholars in the field of Italian Studies a chance to share their research and test their ideas. Participants will present their papers in virtual panel sessions and then receive feedback from senior scholars and junior colleagues in a welcoming and supportive environment. Papers can be in English or Italian and should be no more than 20 minutes in length. All sessions will be recorded and made available to symposium participants.

We welcome proposals from postgraduate students and early career scholars for papers on any aspect of Italian history, politics, society, and culture from the eighteenth to the twenty-first century.

Alternatively, you may participate in the symposium by submitting a poster or video-essay of your research. These will be showcased in an interactive online forum to encourage the exchange of ideas and feedback between postgraduate students.

Please send an abstract (max 250 words) and a short biography (max 100 words) to the symposium organisers at by 30th October.
