Following a successful conference focused on Italy and China at the University of Toronto in 2016, Stony Brook University’s Center for Italian Studies and the Confucius Institute in collaboration with the University of British Columbia, have organized a new conference centered on Italy and East Asia. “Italy and East Asia: Exchanges and Parallels” will take place October 11 through October 13 at the Charles B. Wang Center. Attendance at all proceedings is free and open to the public.
Many relationships exist between Italy and East Asia that have captured the attention of current English and Italian language scholarship. Through a wide ranging set of panels that will include presentations by international scholars from Asia, Canada, the United States and Western Europe, the conference will explore and assess what is at stake in the Italian-East Asian dialogue and expand existing research on issues relating to Italy and East Asia.
