This collection contains new and innovative research into the work of the Italian antifascist partisan, concentration camp survivor, author and thinker Primo Levi (1919-1987). It features original essays by many of the world's foremost Levi scholars and by specialists in fields as varied as education, theology, and fine art. Levi's legacy continues to drive a vibrant, continually evolving body of interdisciplinary scholarship, as the contributions to this intellectually rich, tightly organized volume confirm. The essays gathered here demonstrate a remarkable breadth across five distinct yet interrelated areas: ethics, communication, and education; humanity, animality, and science; the camps: memory and space; literature and intertext; and media, publishing, and illustration.
