The fourth edition of the Italian Diaspora Studies Summer Seminar (IDSSS) will take place June 11-29, 2018, at Roma Tre University. This three-week summer program 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 Roma Tre University 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 (breakfast and lunch), and tuition (twelve credits, Roma Tre University): $3,000. Air and ground travel are additional. Fellowships of $1,500 are available.

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