“Amor Vincit Omnia: Love as A Destructive Force in Italian Arts and Literature,” Friday, April 24th and Saturday, April 25th

logoforemail
Dear Colleagues,
On behalf of the graduate students in the departments of Italian and Art History, we are pleased to invite you to an interdisciplinary graduate student conference, Amor Vincit Omnia: Love as A Destructive Force in Italian Arts and Literature to be held on Friday, April 24th and Saturday, April 25th, at the Cochrane Woods Art Center (5540 S. Greenwood Ave.). There will also be a Keynote Lecture on April 24th at 5.30pm, given by Professor Giuseppe Mazzotta, Yale University, at Breasted Hall in the Oriental Institute (1155 E. 58th St.).
We have attached the schedule of events for the conference and a brief description of the theme. We hope to see many of you there!
A presto,
2015 Conference Organizing Committee
Theme:
The tragic nature of love has been addressed by Italian artists and writers from antiquity to modern times. Vergil’s depiction of Dido, Bernini’s Apollo and Daphne, Dante’s Paolo and Francesca, Verdi’s Aida, and, more recently, Fellini’s Cabiria and De Chirico’s Ariadne all explore the bewitching, intoxicating, confounding effects of love, and its disastrous consequences. This conference aims to explore the varieties of representation of sorrowful love and its evolution over time; new understandings that can be gleaned from a variety of evidence; and dialogue and divergence between portrayals of tragic Italian love across the Humanities.
