William Demby International Symposium: May 31 - June 1, 2018 | University of Rome, La Sapienza

In May 2018, I'll be presenting at the William Demby International Symposium at the University of Rome, La Sapienza. From the Call for Papers:

 

"This two-day symposium will address this critical gap and commemorate the life and work of the late African American author William Demby (1922-2013). Demby spent decades living in Rome following his service in Italy during World War II. Scholars will discuss Demby's work as a novelist, reporter, and screenwriter, translator, and editor for the Italian cinema."
