The 2022 Sorbello Fellowship Grant has been awarded to Amanda Swain (IES Abroad, Milan). The title of the funded research project is “Friends, of whom I have not got the equal anywhere”: Nicola Chiaromonte and the New York Intellectuals, 1947-1972.
This research project aims at producing an annotated collection of Italian intellectual Nicola Chiaromonte’s unpublished 1947-1972 correspondence with American friends belonging to the group of leftwing writers and critics known as the New York Intellectuals. The volume of letters will open with an introductory chapter that provides an overview of Chiaromonte’s life and thought, contextualizes his intellectual and affective relationships with the New York Intellectuals, and historically situates the themes of the collected correspondence in relation to larger debates, issues, and events.
