The project is funded by an AHRC Research Networking award, under the Care for the Future theme. It will run from July 2012 to Spring 2014, led by Dr Fabio Camilletti as Principal Investigator and Prof. Lesley Caldwell (UCL) as Co-Investigator, with and a team of Warwick researchers including Dr Jenny Burns, Dom Holdaway, and Filippo Trentin.
The 'Roman Modernities' network will allow scholars, artists, and urban planners to engage in joint enquiry on Rome as a paradigmatic location for reconfiguring the trajectory of Western modernity. It will interrogate existing/potential representations of the city from a strongly multi-disciplinary perspective.
Thematically structured events will take place across the UK, Italy, and Germany and will include two conferences, one workshop, and a seminar series, overlapping with an itinerant artistic exhibition and two film screenings.
Please take a look around the website to find more information about the network's upcoming events.
