  • Take a look at what's in store for the new year!
    We reached out to the heads of different Italian and Italian-American institutions in and around New York to find out what major events they have planned for the upcoming year. Here’s what they responded...
  • Art & Culture
    (January 08, 2016)
    Application deadline is March 1, 2016. Don't miss this opportunity. Is the second year of the 'Italian Diaspora Studies Summer School', a successful collaborative program between the University of Calabria and the John D. Calandra Italian American Institute / Queens College of The City University of New York.
  • Now, effective this past September 1, Anthony Julian Tamburri, Dean of the John D. Calandra Italian American Institute is a CUNY Distinguished Professor. The status is conferred by the City University of New York Board of Trustees in recognition of special scholarship merits and commitment to teaching. Tamburri is Queens College’s 15th distinguished professor, and the first in his department, European Languages and Literatures, to achieve this title.
  • Events: Reports
    (December 06, 2013)
    Classroom Conversations Connecting the United Nations with world’s classrooms through discussions on today’s major issues and global responses to them Migration and development
  • Constructive dialogue at John Jay College. Italian and Italian American authors discussed the changing nature of Italian and Italian American culture in contemporary society. Interview with Anthony Julian Tamburri, Professor and Dean of the John D. Calandra Italian American Institute of Queens College: “The Italians tend to speak more in terms of geography, while the Italian-Americans much less under those terms.”
  • Italian/American Studies will flourish only if it gets the requisite support, first and foremost, from its community in order for it then to be part of the larger discourse. We need to support our artists, writers, and scholars. Italian/American Studies is (some might say should be) becoming more and more part of Italian Studies in the United States. As some of you know, there are a few outlets dedicated to scholarship on the Italian diaspora here in the United States. I am connected to two of them.
