Georgetown University, Washington D.C.
Saturday October 21st, 2017 (8:00 A.M. - 7:00 P.M.)
Keynote Speaker: Giuseppe Cavatorta, University of Arizona
The ability to innovate has always been a fundamental trait of the Italian spirit characterizing the work of Italians in many domains, from the arts, to design, to cuisine. In recent years, Italian departments, researchers, and teachers have had to find innovative ways to confront the challenges brought about by changes in higher education and the general shift in students’ interests. This is the main focus of the 2017 Italian Language and Culture Conference organized by the Department of Italian at Georgetown University in collaboration with the Embassy of Italy and the Italian Cultural Institute in celebration of Italian Language Week in Washington D.C. The conference is a venue for educators to share innovative approaches and pedagogical strategies that have been successfully tested and adopted at both a course and program level in the high school and college classroom.
