Prof. Maria Antonella Pelizzari will be a keynote speaker at the ASMI Conference 2013, "Iconic Images in Modern Italy: Politics, Culture and Society". The Association for the Study of Modern Italy (ASMI) was founded in 1982 by Christopher Seton-Watson, to bring together individuals and organizations from the UK and abroad with teaching, research, professional or general interests in modern Italy from all disciplinary angles.
Prof. Pelizzari's keynote address titled "Fractured Imaginaries: Italian Photography as Popular Media" will open up a conference that will explore the many different ways in which images and symbols have circulated in modern Italy since 1800. The conference takes place November 21 and 22 at the University of London.
