We invite applications from doctoral students, recent Ph.D.s, and junior faculty in American Studies, English, Comparative Literature, and related fields.
The fee for the School (covering registration, tuition, housing, breakfast, and lunch) is € 620 for the whole week. Accommodation will be provided in residences and B&Bs in downtown Procida (in double rooms or shared apartments, depending on availability; the fee covers a maximum of 7 nights, starting May 23). Participants are responsible for their own travel arrangements and expenses. Fees will be due on arrival or payable by national or international money order to the school administration.
