    NYTimes looks the “Ferrante effect” on the contemporary publishing landscape in Italy – lots of wonderful titles (some also available in English translation) available for a syllabus of women writers in Italian, including a personal favorite, Igiaba Scego.

    More conversations on Ferrante and on the work of translation from two remarkable women, Jhumpa Lahiri and Ann Goldstein.

    A recent issue of MLN (Vol. 136) edited by Tiziana de Rogatis, Stiliana Milkova, Katrin Wehling-Giorgi was dedicated entirely to Elena Ferrante in a global context. Their introduction describes how the issue grew organically out of a mutual interest in the author, enhanced by a three-day seminar at the ACLA convention (2017), three panels at the AAIS conference (2018), and an international conference at Durham University (2019). Their introduction is available here – if your library doesn’t have access, please drop me note and I would be happy to provide it.
