The Bologna Conference is a biennial gathering of the International American Studies Research Group, a consortium of six European and American universities: Brown University, Freie Universität Berlin, University of Bologna, University of California Berkeley, Université de la Sorbonne Nouvelle (Paris III), and Yale University. The conference takes its name from institution at which it began, while also honoring Professor Franco La Polla of Bologna, whose inspiration it was. The 2014 conference will be the seventh collective gathering of this group.
