Visiting Fellowship : The Charles and Joan Alberto Institute at Seton Hall University

Visiting Fellowship  
The Charles and Joan Alberto Institute at Seton Hall University is pleased to announce the availability of two Visiting Fellowships for the academic year of 2017-18, one in the Fall semester and the other in the Spring.  These fellowships aim at providing scholars in Italian Studies with the opportunity to live and do research for a period up to one month in the New York/New Jersey area and to be part of the Italian Studies community at Seton Hall University. The two fellowships are designed to bring here one candidate at the end of his/her doctorate or at the early stage of his/her post-doctorate experience, while the second fellowship is open to candidates at a more advanced stage of their career. We welcome candidates from any geographic areas who are eager to share their scholarship with our students, faculty, and the members of our Italian Studies Institute.
Seton Hall University is located in South Orange, NJ, not far from major libraries in New York City and Princeton University. During his or her visit, the selected candidate will be asked to give a public lecture at the Alberto Institute, two lectures to undergraduate students, and participate to the life of our Italian Studies Program. The fellowships will cover both travel and lodging expenses (flight or train transportation from the city/country of origin and housing for one month) and will provide office space in the Walsh library, which is the home of the Valente Collection, the second largest Italian Studies book collection in New Jersey.
Those who are interested in applying should send:
  • their curriculum vitae
  • a two-page (max) summary of a research project for which they would need to be in this geographic area
  • two alternative dates for the fellowship, which must be started and completed within the following periods: September 15 -November 17, 2017 or January 26 -April 13, 2018
  • two letters of recommendation     
  • proposed topics for one lecture to be delivered at our Institute, and for two lectures to undergraduate students of Italian
The Charles and Joan Alberto Italian Studies Institute was founded in 2003 with the mission of coordinating Seton Hall University's many activities relating to Italian and Italian American history and culture, to sponsor cultural events and to promote curriculum development and community outreach. Our visiting fellowship has been established to promote scholarly exchanges and further develop the scope of academic activities offered in Italian Studies at Seton Hall University. Candidates must be fluent in both English and Italian.
Applications should be sent to Dr. Gabriella Romani, Director of the Alberto Italian Studies Institute at gabriella.romani@shu.edu by March 31, 2017. A selection of three finalists will be contacted for an informal interview (by phone or skype) and the selected candidate will be announced by the end of April 2017.

Call for papers
‘Rethinking Revolutions’ - London School of Economics - 26th May 2017

Over the past twenty years, the study of revolution has lost the centrality it once enjoyed. Yet the study of revolutions has never been so important: in thinking through the aftermath of the Arab uprisings, exploring the ideology of ISIS and other Islamist groups, understanding self-proclaimed revolutionary movements in the West, and interpreting the experience of states that continue to see themselves as revolutionary, such as China, Iran, and Cuba. The study of revolution needs to catch up with the actual experience of revolutionary movements and states.

One barrier to this endeavor is the fracturing of the study of revolutions into different disciplines and sub-fields. This workshop seeks to bring together scholars and students working on revolutions from different disciplinary backgrounds (e.g. Sociology, International Relations, History, and Political Science), sub-fields (e.g. social movements…
