An examination of the life and works of the distinguished, thought-provoking writer and Italian Holocaust Survivor Primo Levi. Through readings from If This is a Man, The Truce, and The Drowned and the Saved, we will follow Levi’s human and intellectual trajectory and examine his role as a witness to the Holocaust and as a critical author of our times.
Dr. Nicola Gavioli is Assistant Professor of Portuguese at Florida International University and a specialist in war and witness literature. He is currently researching Primo Levi’s body of work. For more information about Nicola Gavioli, Assistant Professor of Portuguese, CLICK HERE.
