Location: University of Pittsburgh Italian Program & Heinz History Center Italian American Program. Call for Papers: "Mining the Diaspora: Italian American Materialities, Archaeologies & Intersections". Submissions due June 15, 2022. The Italian American Studies Association (IASA) welcomes independent thinkers, scholars, and academics, past and present, to participate in its annual conference.
