The French and Italian Graduate Student Organization would like to invite interested Pitt graduate students and advanced undergraduates to submit proposals of contributions for their upcoming interdisciplinary graduate student conference “Mosaics: Diversity, Difference and Assemblage,” to be held February 24, 2017. In light of continuing approaches to artistic production that draw on rhizomatic thought, this conference proposes a reconsideration of difference and diversity in French and Italian literature, film and theory.

Do you want to share your ideas with other undergraduate students? Or get feedback on a paper? Maybe you are considering graduate school in one of the modern languages and want to get some conference experience and practice your presentation skills? Consider sending an abstract to the exciting conference we are planning at the University of Pittsburgh. Abstracts should be sent to Professor Giuseppina Mecchia, at mecchia@pitt.edu, by December 9 2016.  Deadline for submissions has been extended to January 6, 2017.
