Italian Diaspora Studies Summer Seminar 2022

Jan 08, 2022 268

The Italian Diaspora Studies Summer Seminar™ is a three-week summer program that takes place at Roma Tre University. It is designed to introduce participants (doctoral students and professors) to cultural studies of the Italian diaspora from a variety of academic perspectives and to foster development of individual projects responding to the materials covered in the series of seminars in literature, film, and the social sciences.

All participants will engage in a special research project. The Italian Diaspora Studies Summer Seminar is open to graduate students (doctorate; advanced MA students may be considered) and professors from colleges and universities worldwide. This is a collaborative program between the John D. Calandra Italian American Institute / Queens College of The City University of New York and the Roma Tre University.

Professors from these two institutions and others will comprise the teaching faculty for the entire three weeks. This is the sixth year of the Italian Diaspora Studies Summer Seminar.

The program will be accepting up to twenty participants. The dates for 2022 are from June 13 to July 1, 2022. Application Deadline—March 4, 2022

Fellows will spend three weeks in a four-star hotel that is a ten-minute walk from Roma Tre University. Cost of room, board (breakfast and lunch), and tuition (12 Roma Tre credit hours): $3,000. Air and ground travel are additional. Click here for the application form and click here for more information on the program schedule and faculty. Scholarships of $1,500 per participant are available.

At this time, we are soliciting applications. However, given the inconsistent situation with COVID-19, we will hold off on any final decisions of the 2022 Seminar until we have approval from both Roma Tre University and CUNY. We will not, at this juncture, require a deposit upon acceptance until we have a final decision by our two home institutions.
