New Directions in Italian and Italian-American History: A Conference in Honor of Philip Cannistraro

With the passing of Philip Cannistraro in 2005 the historical world lost a giant in the field of Italian and Italian-American History. Cannistraro contributed groundbreaking work in both fields, and was similarly committed to the notion that his graduate students should continue his legacy of taking on significant issues and offering new interpretations. Participants will include: William Adams, David Aliano, Marcella Bencivenni, Emily Braun, Paul Corner, John Davis, Ernest Ialongo, Charles Killinger, Gerald Meyer, Marta Petrusewicz, Stanislao Pugliese, Peter Vellon, and others.

Sponsored by the John D. Calandra Italian American Institute; the Department of History, Queens College, CUNY; and the Ph.D. Program in History, The Graduate Center, CUNY
