Andrea Ciccarelli, Department of French and Italian Studies, Indiana University

Crossing Borders: The Case of Fleur Jaeggy

Andrea Cicarelli's current research focus is twofold. He is working on twentieth-century poetry as well as on the related concepts of migration, boundaries, and frontiers in contemporary and 20th-century Italian literature. He has written extensively on Manzoni and more recently on the writings of contemporary author Claudio Magris. At Indiana University, he serves as Chair of the Department of French and Italian and directs the Summer Program in Florence. He has published articles on modern and contemporary Italian culture in journals in Italy as well as in the US, and he is the editor of Italica, the journal of the American Association of Teachers of Italian.

The Emilio Goggio Chair in Italian Studies was established in the Department of Italian Studies at the University of Toronto in 1995 with funds donated by members of the Goggio family resident in the United States to honour the memory of their parents: their father Emilio, who served as Chair of the Department of Italian and Spanish of the University of Toronto from 1946 to 1956, and their mother Emma. The fund was matched by the University and slightly augmented by a grant from the Italian government.

The endowment covers two areas: first, it is intended to support research in Italian studies through the invitation of a distinguished Visiting Professor to teach and/or lecture in the Department each year, sponsorship of one annual public lecture to be given in English and to be known as the Emilio Goggio Annual Lecture, and also funding for occasional conferences and some publications. The incumbent of the Goggio Chair is the Chair of the Department, at present Professor Salvatore Bancheri.

This event is free and open to the public. For further information, please contact the Department of Italian Studies.
