29/11/19-Mallarmé’s irony

Studied by Luigi de Nardis in 1962, Mallarmé’s irony is a literary phenomenon not completely explored by modern criticism. While in the first phases of his production irony is generally consists in a practice of deconstruction and reformulation of meaning, in his more mature lyrics it becomes more reflective, generating a sort of auto-parody in which Mallarmé cites his own style and some recurring themes of his poetry.


Luca Bevilacqua is an associate Professor of French Literature at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”, where he teaches French language and literature. His main research field is French poetry, with a special focus on French 19th Century. As a specialist of Mallarmé, he recently published a commented edition of his Poems (Mallarmé, Poesie, Marsilio «Letteratura universale/I Fiori blu», 2017)

25/10/19-Investigation during the 19th century: historiographical and fictional model

During the 19th century, investigations become extremely important in several different fields such as social science, criminology, demography and economics. This period is also regarded as the century of history; the Greek meaning of the word “history” (“investigator”, “witness”): the etymology of this term highlights its strong relationship to some genres like reports in newspapers and reviews and testimony in autobiographical literature.

24/10/19-The concept of public literature

Through the analysis of corpus of texts by Balzac, Maupassant and Zola, this conference discusses the notion of “public literature” from the critical point of view of gender studies and press studies.
Frequently used by 19th Century’s authors and critics, the metaphor of “literary prostitution” allows a representation of the writer dealing with the commercialization and democratisation of literary works.
The prostitute-writer, paid by the director of a given periodical, reaches new domains where he gains an absolute power and becomes a meta-poetic figure, the double of a writer hoping to reach to an increasingly bigger reading public.

The publication of the volume La Bibbia nella letteratura italiana. VI. Dalla Controriforma all’Età napoleonica, Brescia, Morcelliana, edited by me, has concluded the twenty year-long project about the sacred aspects of the Italian literature coordinated by Piero Gibellini. I joined in that research since its beginning with the study of the classical myth in the literature (6 volumes), investigating the connections between Montale’s poetry and the classical myth, and with the study of the sacred Scriptures (6 volumes), deepening the interpretation that Leopardi made of the Bible.

This research explores nation-building in Latin America with a focus on the interplay between race and environment. By tracing connections between national and geo-graphical narratives, it seeks to make a contribution towards a better understanding of the ways in which conceptualisations of geography in Latin America have informed and often overlapped with theories and practices of race. The four articles reach two interconnected conclusions. Firstly, they show the multiple links between cultural, environmental and biological racism, enlarging and deepening our understanding ofthe idea of race and the extent of its performative value for discourses on the nation. In postcolonial Latin America, this process was marked by hybrid intellectual traditions resulting from crossings of people and ideas within the region and with Europe. Secondly, they unearth the tensions between homogeneity and heterogeneity in LatinAmerican nation-building by honing in on narratives of mestizaje. The contributions tothis issue lie at the intersection of a number of elds: cultural and social history, intellectual history, politics and international relations, historical geography, travel writing and environmental history. They span a period from the middle of the nineteenth century to the mid twentieth century, while covering a wide and diverse geographical and regional range including Honduras and Central America, Colombia, the Brazilian Amazon and Argentina.
