Study Italian Diaspora Culture
in Calabria through a Unique Summer Program

This three-week summer program at the University of Calabria (Arcavacata di Rende) is now in its third edition. The Seminar takes place June 12–30, 2017 and is designed to introduce participants (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.

The Italian Diaspora Studies Summer Seminar is open to graduate students (doctorate; advanced MA students may be considered) and professors from colleges and universities worldwide. 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 three weeks.

Cost of room, board, and tuition (6 UniCal credit hours): $3,000. Air and ground travel are additional. Click here for the application form, and click here for more information on the program schedule and faculty.

Application Deadline: February 24, 2017.
