Details

Adapted from Dr. Fiore’s recent book Pre-occupied Spaces (Fordham UP 2017), winner of the 2017 American Association of Italian Studies Book Prize, this lecture poses Italy as a unique laboratory to rethink national belonging and participation at large in our era of massive demographic mobility. Italy’s formation and development are analyzed on a transnational map that spans the Mediterranean and the Americas through the interrogation of cultural texts addressing travel and living spaces. The operation of re-mapping proposed by the lecture is also an occasion to rethink the discipline of Italian Studies in a dynamic way, using the country’s multiple forms of mobility to identify spaces of cross-pollination within a transnational and translingual vision.

Teresa Fiore is the Theresa and Lawrence R. Inserra Chair in Italian and Italian American Studies at Montclair State University, where she coordinates a regular program of cultural events and educational initiatives that focus on the circulation of people, ideas, languages, products from and to Italy.
