The Hofstra Cultural Center presents its Fall 2012 Italian-American Experience Lecture Series with the theme “Italian American Politics: From Fiorello LaGuardia to Andrew Cuomo.”  Giuliani’s Italianness will be the lecture on Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2012 (rescheduled from October 30).


Giuliani’s Italianness

Speaker: Jerome Krase

Professor Emeritus of Sociology and

Murray Koppelman Professor

Brooklyn College/CUNY


The Fall 2012 Italian-American Experience Lecture Series is directed by Professor of History Stanislao G. Pugliese, Hofstra Cultural Center Fellow and Queensboro UNICO Distinguished Professor of Italian. As the nation is focused on the presidential campaign and Hofstra is preparing to host the October 16th presidential debate, Dr. Pugliese says, “We decided to examine the theme of politics and the Italian American community in New York through the careers of Fiorello LaGuardia, Rudy Giuliani and Mario and Andrew Cuomo. The intersection of politics and ethnicity created some fascinating episodes in Italian American history.”
