Royal Holloway University of London. 23rd–24th June. 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.
ASMI offers a wide range of opportunities for postgraduate students.
First of all, its conferences and events, such as the Annual International Conference, and overall the annual ASMI Postgraduate Summer School (see below) represent good occasions to develop contacts with scholars and academics working on related fields and to maintain networks with the most important Institutions and Associations in Italian Studies.
Secondly, ASMI gives postgraduate students advantageous opportunities to be published in the journal Modern Italy.
In addition, the ASMI Postgraduate Essay Prize has been designed specifically for postgraduate students as a means to encourage their research and publish their work.
Finally, ASMI offers the Christopher Duggan Postgraduate Travel Bursary. This bursary, in commemoration of Professor Christopher Duggan, is open to all postgraduate members of ASMI, currently registered for a higher degree at a university in the United Kingdom, and to those ASMI members who have completed a PhD within two years of the deadline for application but who have no access to other sources of funding. Applicants working on any field cover by ASMI may apply for a sum of up to £500. Awards are made twice a year. The deadlines for submission are 20 January and 20 May.
Please send your application to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The ASMI postgraduate representative is George Newth, University of Reading. If any students have suggestions for potential postgraduate initiatives, these can be addressed to the postgraduate representative at: G.H.Newth@pgr.reading.ac.uk
Please, notice the call for Summer School has been extended until Friday 14 April
