Cultural Writing. Edited by Graziella Parati and Ben Lawton. ITALIAN CULTURAL STUDIES includes selected essays written by participants of the Italian Cultural Studies Symposium at Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH on October 29-31, 1999.

What is its relation to traditional language studies? Contributors include Norma Bouchard, Joseph A. Buttigieg, Sandra Carletti, Roberto Maria Dainotto, Nathalie Hester, Sarah Patricia Hill, Irene Kacandes, Giancarlo Lombardi, Daniela Orlandi, Marie Orton, Nicoletta Pireddu, Adrian W.B.
