Book Presentation: New Italian Migrations to the United States From 1945 to Present

NOTA BENE: This event will not take place at the Calandra Institute. See below.

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 seventy 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.

Speakers: Laura E. Ruberto
Berkeley City College

Joseph Sciorra
Queens College, CUNY
