New Italian Migrations to the United States

New Italian Migrations to the United States

Authors Laura E. Ruberto and Joseph Sciorra present New Italian Migrations to the United States, a two-volume collection that explores Italian immigration to the United States from 1945 to the present day.

The books offer a radical rethinking of the history of Italian Americans by focusing on immigration to the United States over the last seventy years. Edited by Laura E. Ruberto and Joseph Sciorra with essays by an elite roster of fifteen scholars, the books look at how continual immigration from Italy influenced immigration laws, impacted urban communities, contributed to U.S. consumer culture, and continues still today to reboot and reshape Italian American culture and U.S. culture generally in still-unfolding ways.

New Italian Migrations to the United States: Vol. 1, Politics and History since 1945 and Vol. 2, Art and Culture since 1945 (Laura E. Ruberto and Joseph Sciorra, Editors; University of Illinois Press, 2017)

This event is co-sponsored by the Museo Italo Americano.

The presentation will be followed by refreshments. This event is free and open to the public.
