The Dark Side of Mediterranean Landscape
Prof Tullio Pagano
Tuesday, 9 December 2008
1.00 p.m., O'Rahilly Building, Room 1.24
The concept of landscape has been the object of intense critical discussions during the last 20 years. This presentation will examine some of the major theoretical contributions to the field (Simmel, Ritter, Jackson and others) and will then focus on a single case study: the Mediterranean region of Liguria, whose landscape has been described from different perspectives by some of the leading XX century Italian writers, from Eugenio Montale to Italo Calvino and Giorgio Caproni.
Tullio Pagano is Associate Professor of Italian at Dickinson College, in Pennsylvania. He has studied at the University of Genoa, Italy, and received a doctorate in Comparative Literature from the University of Oregon. His research interests include French and Italian Naturalism, Modernism, and theories of modern allegory, diaspora, and landscape studies.
