This three-week summer program at the University of Calabria (Arcavacata di Rende) is now in its third edition. The Italian Diaspora Studies Summer Seminar (IDSSS) takes place June 12-30, 2017, and is designed to introduce participants (advanced graduate and/or doctoral students and professors) to cultural studies of the Italian Diaspora from a variety of academic perspectives and to foster development of individual projects responding to the materials covered in the series of seminars in literature, film, and the social sciences. All participants will engage in a special research project.

This is a collaborative program between the University of Calabria and the John D. Calandra Italian American Institute/Queens College of The City University of New York. Professors from these two institutions and others will comprise the teaching faculty for the program.

Cost of room, board, and tuition (6 UniCal credit hours): $3,000. Air and ground travel are additional. For more information about the program schedule and faculty, contact Dean Anthony Julian Tamburri at 212.642.2094 or via email at anthony.tamburri@qc.cuny.edu.

Please share with your colleagues within CUNY far and wide!

This is open to all CUNY doctoral students and/or faculty interested in the Italian diaspora, and not just to Italian Americans.
