Meeting Description:

The Graduate Conference has been organized annually since 2015 by Ph.D. students enrolled in the second year of the Ph.D. in Literary, Linguistic and Comparative Studies of the University of Naples ''L'Orientale''.
Over the years, the conferences - which take place punctually in October in the suggestive location of Palazzo Du Mesnil (Naples, Italy)- involving scholars from universities national and international, and have put interdisciplinary topics at the center of discussions.
The VI edition of the Graduate Conference, ''The changing city: representations, metaphors, memory'', has the purpose to offer new graduates, doctoral students and researchers an opportunity to present research and structured contributions around the theme of the kaleidoscopic city. The conference, which will be held in the days 21, 22 and 23 October 2020, also wants to represent for its participants a moment to weave relationships and make new contacts.
