THE NEXT ITALIAN MEETING of the 2018-2019 PROGRAM YEAR
IS THIS COMING WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23 at St. Patrick's Church, Social Hall, 2702 Broadway E, Seattle
Our speaker will be Prof. Susan Gaylard from the Italian Department of the University of Washington. Under the topic "Italian Fashion and Politics", Professor Gaylard will discuss a few *historical* moments from across the centuries in which we see Italian politics and fashion reflecting each other.
Susan Gaylard is Associate Professor of Italian Studies and affiliate faculty in Art History at the University of Washington, Seattle. Her research and teaching focus on intersections between textual and material culture, from printed portraits to the fashion industry. Her first book, Hollow Men, showed how Renaissance writers imagined themselves and their works as permanent monuments. She is currently working on a new book analyzing the disappearance of images of women from 16th-century European histories.
As usual, the evening will begin with food and conversation at 6:30. Please bring an antipasto, dolce or vino to share. The presentation in Italian will start at 7:30. There is no cost for the meeting.
At the meeting this Wednesday you will also have the opportunity to renew your membership for 2019 or sign up for the Wine Dinner on February 13 if you have not already done so.
This meeting will be our second in the Parish Social Hall at St. Patrick's Church.
