The goal of the International Society for Polysystem Studies (ISPS) is to create and maintain an open and evolving forum for all those interested in, and dedicated to, the use and promotion of Polysystem Theory.
After last year’s initial step in Reykholt, Iceland, we are now convening the second annual meeting of the ISPS in Levico Terme (Trento, Italy) on October 6th and 7th 2017. At that time professors Thomas S. Harrington and Fulvio Ferrari, distinguished scholars whose work has been strongly influenced by Polysystem Theory, will deliver their keynote speeches and other members of the Society will present updates on their research work. We expect to stage similar celebrations of the study of culture at various points around the globe in the coming years.
This conference is organized in co-operation with the Università di Trento (Dipartimento di Lettere e Filosofia).
