The Association of Italian Canadian Writers (AICW) is accepting proposals for its 16th biennial conference to be held in Padula, Italy, from May 5 to May 8, 2016. Inspired by the location of the conference which combines the slow pace of tradition and history with the fast-paced urban moment, this conference seeks to bring together academic papers and literary readings that engage with the themes of physical, aesthetic, and symbolic mobility and change in Italian-Canadian literature and culture.
