Meeting Description: Over the past decades in Australia and internationally we have witnessed major cultural, political and economic changes which have impacted on the nature and delivery of Italian Studies: the aging of first and second generation post-war Italian migrants, the retreat from more advanced multicultural policy positions, the refocussing of Australian international relations towards Asia; the arrival of increasing numbers of highly mobile Italian professionals. Recognising the changing profile and affiliations of learners of Italian in our universities and the profound contemporary cultural and technological transformations, it is timely to re-imagine Italian Studies into the 21st century.

The ACIS 7th Biennial Conference will be held at Flinders University and the University of South Australia, Adelaide CBD from 4-6 December 2013. Please book your hotels early to avoid disappointment as there are other events on that week.
