Please mark your calendars for the upcoming lecture by Giancarlo Tursi, who is a candidate for the position of Assistant Professor of Translation Studies and Translation Theory in the Department of French and Italian. Dr. Tursi's talk is entitled "Dialectal Dialectics: The Politics of Translation in Risorgimento Italy, from Dante to Gramsci".  
Giancarlo Tursi is currently completing his PhD in Comparative Literature at NYU, with an earlier MA degree from Paris-III Sorbonne. Trilingual in Italian, English and the Southern Italian dialect of Martinese, he is also fluent in French and Spanish. With an interest in language politics, multilingualism and the question of minor languages, his thesis focuses on the case of the translation of Dante into Italian dialects during the nation-building years of the Risorgimento.
