It is with great sadness that ASMI announces the death of our Honorary President and former Chair, Denis Mack Smith. The foremost scholar of modern and contemporary Italy in the postwar era, Denis worked at the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford and was a fellow of the British Academy. His intelligence, wit and charm will be missed by all who knew him. A fuller tribute will follow in due course in Modern Italy.

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

Participants will present their papers in 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.
Please send an abstract (max 250 words) and a short biography (max 100 words) to the conference organisers at email@example.com by Friday 31st March 2017.
The summer school program includes two keynote lectures and a training session:
