Please join us on Wednesday, April 26 at 5:30pm in Lecture Center 108 for our next Luigi and Anita Traverso Lecture entitled “Blackness in Italian Culture: Afro-Modernism in F.T. Marinetti’s work” by Sara Marzioli (Bard College).
Sara Marzioli is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Italian at Bard College. Previously she has taught African American, Comparative and World Literature courses at Penn State and Guilford College. Her research brings into conversation twentieth-century African Diasporic and Italian writers and film directors, whose work addresses the intersection of history with modernist aesthetic and radical politics. She has published in African American Review and Atlantic Studies and has work forthcoming in Modernism/Modernity, as well as a chapter in a forthcoming collection edited by Indiana University Press. Currently, she is at work on a book manuscript titled, The Color of The Archive: Italian and Afro-Modernism Between the Atlantic and The Mediterranean.
