Kennen Sie schon … die Society for Italian Studies?

Die „SIS“ trägt das Mot­to „Sup­port­ing Ital­ian stud­ies in Britain and Ire­land“:

The role of the Soci­ety for Ital­ian Stud­ies (SIS) is to fur­ther the study of Italy, Ital­ian lan­guage, lit­er­a­ture, film, thought, his­to­ry, soci­ety and arts in the Unit­ed King­dom and Ire­land. It rep­re­sents the dis­ci­pline, pro­vid­ing a voice for Ital­ian Stud­ies at nation­al and inter­na­tion­al lev­el and par­tic­i­pat­ing in the work of the Uni­ver­si­ty Coun­cil of Mod­ern Lan­guages (UCML) to pro­mote the study of Mod­ern Lan­guages.

It sup­ports research through the work of its jour­nal, Ital­ian Stud­ies; through its bien­ni­al and inter­im con­fer­ences; through its grants for con­fer­ences and for col­lab­o­ra­tive research projects; through its sup­port of the post-grad­u­ate com­mu­ni­ty; and through its involve­ment in nation­al and inter­na­tion­al research exer­cis­es.

It works to ensure that all areas of Ital­ian Stud­ies are con­nect­ed and it encour­ages col­lab­o­ra­tion with the sub­ject asso­ci­a­tions of cog­nate dis­ci­plines, with oth­er soci­eties and insti­tu­tions that pro­mote the study of Italy, and with the cul­tur­al orga­ni­za­tions of the Ital­ian State.

The SIS sup­ports the teach­ing of the Ital­ian lan­guage by pro­vid­ing a forum for lan­guage teach­ers, and through its annu­al con­fer­ence on lan­guage teach­ing. It pro­motes con­nec­tions beyond the High­er Edu­ca­tion sec­tor, and aims, through its work, to encour­age the dis­sem­i­na­tion of the exper­tise of all Ital­ian depart­ments in the UK and Ire­land.

Die Gesellschaft ist auch auf Face­book und Twit­ter vertreten.
