The AICW, in collaboration with the Italian Studies Program at Laurentian University, is accepting proposals for the Italians in Canada: 150+ Years conference to be held at Laurentian University, Sudbury, Ontario, September 15-16, 2017.
Every spring the Association of Italian Canadian Writers (AICW) organizes events at Montreal's Blue Metropolis Festival. The next festival will take place April 24 to 30, 2017. In 2016, to mark AICW's 30th anniversary, editors Delia De Santis and Venera Fazio presented the volume Exploring Voice and discussed women’s contribution to Italian Canadian literature. The panel "Women and the AICW: 30 Years of Writing" included authors Licia Canton, Delia De Santis, Mary Di Michele, Giulia De Gasperi, Venera Fazio, Connie Guzzo-McParland and Maria Luisa Ierfino.
Hosted by Marianna Simeone, the event was presented in collaboration with the Frank Iacobucci Centre for Italian Canadian Studies (Toronto) and the ItalianCultural Institute of Montreal.
AICW’s 18th biennial conference will be held in 2018. Our 16th Biennial Conference, Italian-Canadian Literature: Departures, Journeys, Destinations was held in Padula, Italy, from August 11 to 14, 2016. The official program is available at the link below.
