La nuova gioventù? The Intellectual Legacy of Pier Paolo Pasolini – 30 Years On
La nuova gioventù? Conversazioni sull'eredità intellettuale di Pier Paolo Pasolini 30 anni dopo
CRASSH, 17 Mill Lane, Cambridge
Convenor: Laurence Hooper (University of Cambridge) & Emanuela Patti (University of Birmingham)
Thirty years ago, on 2nd November 1975, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Italy's foremost postwar intellectual was murdered in the outskirts of Rome. Pasolini was a protean figure, a poet, filmmaker, novelist, journalist, playwright and even a painter whose work never failed to challenge and subvert established genres, making its appreciation a complex task. This bilingual conference seeks to commemorate and celebrate Pasolini's legacy by bringing together scholars and practitioners of different generations and nationalities to examine his oeuvre's changing impact over the three decades since his death.
Conference delegates will also be invited to attend a performance of Pasolini's play Orgy (Orgia), which will be given its English Language Premiere at the Corpus Christi College Playroom, 1st-5th November at 9.30 pm, in a new translation by Laurence Hooper
