Continue with this chain of translations using different languages (Russian, Czech, Bulgarian, Dutch, German, Spanish). Last of all, have the text translated back into Italian. What would the result of this ‘game’ be? It would be a new text, certainly different from the original one and — maybe &nda

This panel seeks papers addressing the impact of alcohol on American authors from 1940 to 1970. Is it true, as Susan Cheever has argued, that being a writer during this period “almost always meant getting drunk? The panel will work to separate the myths from the reality regarding the use of alcohol among writers of the period. In addition, it will assess the impact of alcohol on the quality of writing and its impact on the talent of writers.
