Red House Dinner Series: Prof. Nicoletta Pireddu
Our next event in the Red House Dinner Series will take place on Wednesday, December 6 at the Red House (1237 37th St. NW) from 7:00 – 8:30 PM. Our guest will be Professor Nicoletta Pireddu, Professor of Comparative Literature and Italian.
Prof. Pireddu’s research focuses on European literature and cultural relations, questions of European culture and national identity, and the relationships between anthropology, literature, and history. She directs the 2016-17 FL Hager Scholars Program Colloquium, is a core member of the Comparative Literature program, and teaches the Ignatius Seminar “Borders: Self, Nation, and Beyond.” Her most recent book, The Work of Claudio Magris: Temporary Homes, Mobile Identities, European Borders was published by Palgrave in 2015. You can learn more about Professor Pireddu and her work here.
The Dinner Series brings together Georgetown faculty and students in informal, intimate conversations around innovative approaches in higher education. Last year’s dinner guests included Dr. Marcia Chatelain, Professor Cal Newport, Professor Marc M. Howard, and many more faculty across campus. Dinners are capped at around 15 students, to allow for exciting conversations that may not happen in the classroom or office hours.
