"No Man's Land" successfully conquered!

"No Man's Land", the Penn French and Italian Graduate Society's interdisciplinary conference held last Saturday, March 22nd, was a great success! Italian graduate student Andrew Korn presented a paper on "Antonioni's No Man's Land: Becoming-Land and Regenerating Thought in Zabriskie Point". Elisa Modolo and Andrea Gazzoni moderated the sessions "Representing, Performing, Transgressing Boundaries" and "Violence and the Body", respectively. The final keynote adress by Professor André Benhaïm (Princeton University) - "Welcome to No Man's Land (The Ghosts of the Mediterranean)" - reminded participants of the nature of the Mediterranean as shared cross-cultural space and provided the perfect conclusion to a stimulating meeting of disciplines and minds.
