Professor Cagidemetrio will offer some observations about details in the novel, 19th century Venice, James’s biography, and some literary themes such as don juanism, thinking to reinstate curiosity as a legitimate part of aesthetic pleasure. To begin the process, attached is an image of a detail from mosaics of San Marco, and one of Whistler’s lagoon paintings.
At the reception following her talk, Professor Cagidemetriou will discuss the benefits of collaboration between the University of Venice Ca’ Foscari and UCSC and the possibility of summer courses in Venice.
