Italian/American Culture

SUNY Press

Fred Gardaphe, Editor
This series is the first and, to date, only series to focus exclusively on the study of Italian American culture. Italian Americans comprise the fifth largest ethnic group in the United States and are deeply entwined with the history of New York State, yet Italian Americans have only recently begun to systematically study and evaluate their culture. Because of the diverse nature of the field, the series is open to a variety of disciplines, including anthropology, sociology, literature, history, philosophy, linguistics, and media studies, as well as a variety of forms, including traditional academic monographs, oral histories, fiction, and creative nonfiction. With the establishment of the John D. Calandra Italian American Institute as a permanent research facility in the CUNY system, along with the Program in Italian American Studies and the Alfonse M. D'Amato Chair in Italian American and Italian Studies at SUNY Stony Brook, the future for Italian American studies is bright, and this series provides Italian American scholars and writers an opportunity to develop important contributions to this growing field of study.
