November 1–3, 2018
CALANDRA INSTITUTE, NEW YORK CITY
DIASPORE ITALIANE—ITALY IN MOVEMENT
A Symposium on Three Continents: Australia • United States • Italy
The second part of the symposium, “Transnationalism & Questions of Identity,” will take place in New York City * November 1-3, 2018, at the John D. Calandra Italian American Institute, 25 West 43rd Street, Suite 1700, New York, NY 10036.
This second chapter of the international conference Diaspore Italiane: Italy in Movement will be the backdrop for discussions of identity building, claiming, maintaining, and maiming in the twenty-first century. Transnational contexts show cultural identities in motion reacting, adapting, and developing in reaction to changing notions of the individual nation in today’s world.Transnational subjects with varying degrees of structural constraint navigate, evaluate, and negotiate different cultural options, emerging as the potentially rational agents of these changes. In parallel, cultural identities emerge as historical constructs affected by contemporary acts and this-worldly constructs of the human imagination.
This conference has a $50 fee. There will be a dinner on Saturday for $75 (pay in advance). Click here for dinner menu and information.
