Diasporic Italy: The Journal of the Italian American Studies Association

Diasporic Italy is a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal devoted to the interdisciplinary study of Italian American / Diaspora studies, focusing on timely and varied approaches to the criticism and analysis of the field by exploring new perspectives on issues of diversity, gender, race, sexuality, and transnationalism. It is the official publication of the Italian American Studies Association published by the University of Illinois Press.

Unique from other journals in the field, Diasporic Italy not only seeks to publish pieces in literature, cinema and media studies, history, art history, ethnic studies, migration studies and political science but also original works in sociology, psychology, theology, sexuality studies, women and gender studies, pedagogy and translation. Currently, we will publish one volume annually in October. The inaugural issue forthcoming in 2021. We will not review books or media.
