Italian-American Experience Lecture Series: New Italian Migrations to the United States From 1945 to Present

The fall 2018 Italian-American Experience Lecture Series will explore Italian-American Women, Politics, and Recent Immigration. The final lecture this fall will be New Italian Migrations to the United States From 1945 to Present. The presentation will highlight the two-volume collection, New Italian Migrations to the United States (University of Illinois Press, 2017), which offers a radical rethinking of the history of Italian-Americans. The books’ editors will discuss how the continual immigration from Italy over the past 70 years has influenced immigration laws, impacted local communities, contributed to consumer culture, and continues to reboot Italian-American and U.S. culture in still-unfolding ways.

SpeakersLaura E. Ruberto, Berkeley City College
               Joseph Sciorra, Queens College, CUNY

The Italian-American Experience Lecture Series is presented by the Hofstra Cultural Center and supported, in part, by the Association of Italian American Educators.
