Click here to see the complete conference program and to register for sessions/events. As always, the conference, like all Calandra's public programming, is free and open to everyone.

Introducing Calandra Corner
With the COVID-19 pandemic, venues that devote resources to public programming, like the Calandra Institute, have had to switch things up a bit. Calandra Corner is a new and flexible means by which we have been able to continue with some of our scheduled events that could not take place in person as well as add other fun and informative online events. These new offerings are mostly shorter and more casual conversations with people in and around the Italian American community who continue to do exciting work. Click here to see all the Corner conversations to date, and check back often, because we are only doing more.
