Italy in the First World War: the upcoming conference by the Association for the Study of Modern Italy (ASMI)

As we read in the programme here, "to mark the centenary of Italy’s entry into the First World War, the Association for the Study of Modern Italy (ASMI), in conjunction with Italian Studies at Oxford, is holding a one-day international conference to examine the experience of 1915-18 from a variety of perspectives: military, social, political, cultural and comparative." The conference is open to all and will be held at the Taylorian Institute, University of Oxford, on Saturday 10 October 2015. In the panel we read also the name of Mark Thompspon, author of the essential study on the Italian "white war" on the Alps (The White War. Life and Death on the Italian Front 1915-1918, at this link to The Guardian's website you can find a thorough review of the book). For those who might be interested in the conference, the full address is Taylor Institution, room 2 University of Oxford St Giles’ Oxford OX1 3NA. Info:
