Summer School 2024

The Department of Literature and Modern Cultures of Sapienza University is going to host the third edition of the Summer School The Cultural Heritage and Memory of Totalitarianism between May 27 and June 7, 2024. The in-person summer course provides a unique opportunity for graduate students and early career junior professionals to explore the cultural, visual and literary legacy of totalitarian regimes and their transnational heritage and memory.

The School combines lectures and seminars with in situ visits to the many sites of the memory of fascism and colonialism in the city of Rome. All activities are led by international experts in fields such as Comparative History, Postcolonial Literature, Visual Arts, Diaspora, Conservation and Museum Studies. Here you can find the programme.
