Mafia culture lecture planned for MSSU

Updated:

Dr. Monica Seger, assistant professor Italian at the University of Oklahoma, will deliver three lectures at Missouri Southern State University on Monday, Sept. 9.

"Mafia Culture:  History and Representation in Italy and Beyond" will begin at 9 a.m. in Corley Auditorium in Webster Hall.

The lecture will explore the roots of the mafia, both in Italy and North America, since the late 19th century.  It will address the history of the mafia and related criminal organizations and will pay particular attention to the socio-political circumstances surrounding the creation and development of the mafia, its effect on contemporary Italy, and its history of representation in the media.

Two other lectures are:  "Italian film from Cabiria to Caesar Must Die," which will take place at 11 a.m. in Corley Auditorium, and "Neorealism:  Material Conditions, Ideological Motivations and Lasting Effects," which will take place at noon in Corley Auditorium.

The presentations are free and open to the public.
