Another Casanova Conference!

Make your plans now to be in Chieti-Pescara to attend an International Conference on Casanova, September 22-23, 2022. The full title is “Levantine Sociabilities in Europe in Giacomo Casanova’s Time: Spies, Imposters, Courtesans, and Men of Culture.” See the link for the details and location.

Pietro Longhi, The Ridotto in Venice

You can see from the title that the conference will focus on Enlightenment values of sociability–people coming together, sharing ideas, traveling, letter writing, diplomacy, and much much more. If you enjoy Enlightenment or 18th century studies, it looks like you’ll find much to learn and discuss here.

The keynote will be delivered by Malina Stefanovska, my co-producer of the Casanova in Place Symposium in Venice 2019 and a professor at UCLA. There are lots of presenters and papers here, so the discussion should be rich, varied, and fresh. I won’t be able to attend this one, so I hope others can and will tell me all about it!
