Dr. Marco Codebò, Associate Professor of French & Italian at Long Island University, C.W. Post Campus, will present his lecture titled "Collaborative Writing in Italian Fiction: The Case of In territorio nemico" as this semester's installment of the Traverso Lecture Series in Italian Studies. The talk will discuss the formalized method of collaborative writing in the composition of In territorio nemico, as well as the connections between collaborative writing, digital technology, and the literary tradition of multi-authorship. The lecture also aims at assessing the situation of the novel in the third millennium, or the age in which the printed book—the object that has been the novel’s material support for five centuries—seems to have reached its technological obsolescence.
