Mammismo: The Emergence of a National Stereotype

Primarily a debate on Marina D’Amelia’s thesis that the strong relationship between Italian mothers and their sons is an example of an ‘invented tradition’ that was forged just after the Second World War as a means of explaining Italy’s ills. This workshop will concentrate mainly on the post-1945 period.

Speakers will include, Dr Penelope Morris (University of Glasgow), Prof Silvana Patriarca (Fordham University, New York), Prof Joyce Antler (Brandeis University). Also present, as part of the core advisory group:  Dr Lesley Caldwell, Prof Perry Willson (University of Dundee), Dr Kate Mitchell (University of Strathclyde).
