This three-week summer program at the University of Calabria (Arcavacata di Rende) takes place June 13 through July 1 and is designed to introduce participants (doctoral students and professors) to cultural studies of the Italian Diaspora from a variety of academic perspectives. Maddalena Tirabassi will join the faculty teaching a course on Italian Migrations.
This is the second year of the Italian Diaspora Studies Summer School, 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.
The program will foster development of individual projects responding to the materials covered in a series of seminars in literature, film, and the social sciences. All participants will engage in a special research project. The Italian Diaspora Studies Summer School is open to graduate students (doctorate level; advanced MA students may be considered) and professors from colleges and universities worldwide. The course work will count for 6 UniCal credit hours.
Cost of room, board, and tuition: $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.
