Italian-American Experience Lecture Series: Italian Literature in the United States

The Spring 2019 Italian-American Experience Lecture Series will explore Borders: Explorations in Literature, Sexuality, and Napolitanita. The first lecture will discuss  Italian Literature in the United States. This presentation is based on research that led to the book Un biculturalismo negato: la letteratura “italiana” negli Stati Uniti (Franco Cesati Editore, 2018). Anthony J. Tamburri examines five writers who live in the United States and write prose and poetry in Italian. Questions posed include: Where does “Italian” end and “Italian-American” begin? What are the issues raised by language? What relationship exists between literature in Italian written in Italy and literature in Italian written elsewhere?

SpeakerAnthony J. Tamburri, Dean, John D. Calandra Italian American Institute of Queens College, CUNY and Distinguished Professor of European Languages and Literatures


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