I am writing with regard to an upcoming lecture series in Italian Studies that may be of interest to students in Draper. Professor Gilles Pécout of the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris is a Visiting Professor at NYU and will be giving a lecture series open to graduate students. The series is entitled Becoming Both Italian and Mediterranean: Fragments of a Political Discourse of the Mediterranean in 19th-Century Italy and will be held on four consecutive Mondays: March 31, April 7, April 14 and April 21. Attached please find a poster and brochure with more information. We ask that you please publicize this event to students in your department.
Professor Pécout will also be giving a public lecture entitled Fighting for Freedom in the Mediterranean: Italian international armed volunteers in Greece in 1897 next Tuesday, March 25th at 6 PM at the Casa Italiana Zerilli-Marimò.
