Finding Joseph Tusiani: The Poet of Two Lands

This symposium takes its name from the documentary on Joseph Tusiani made in 2011 by Sabrina DiGregorio. A major voice in American and Italian letters, Tusiani has dedicated his professional life to the creation, promotion, and promulgation of Italian Studies in the United States. An international award-winning poet, he writes in four different languages (English, Gargano Dialect, Italian, Latin) and has published his work worldwide.
