In October 1917 the bolshevistic Revolution broke out in Russia and in November 1918 another revolution broke out in Germany and led to the birth of the Soviet Republic. These big political and social upheavals have deep influenced the literary and artistic production. The number 17 of “links” aims at exploring the relationship between art and revolution, which has been in the last decades somehow forgotten by literary studies. Not only the Avantgardes, such as Futurism and Dadaism, are strictly related to revolutionary utopias; German speaking authors and playwrights as well have analyzed the revolution both in the theory and in the artistic production.

The proposals, in English (maximum 300 words), should be sent to the editor of the journal, Mauro Ponzi, , by 28 February 2017.
The editorial committee will evaluate the abstracts and convey to the authors the papers that have been accepted for “links” 17. Contributions can be written in English, German, French or Italian.
